George Brown Bailey: In Loving Rememberance

This is a poem George Bailey wrote in remembrance
Of his children who died of diphtheria

Our Carrie dear, and Isaac too, and Rhoda dear so fond,
With Mary Ann and little Frank; David, and Charles are gone.

And now our boy, our first-born child, has gone to join the rest;
He was cut down though young in life, and left his wife bereft.

He was esteemed, he gained a name among the saints of God;
His life was spent in doing good, he bowed beneath the rod.

We miss our boys, our darling girls, when we are all alone;
We see their hats, their clothes, their toys around our silent home.

Now they are gone to realms of bliss, far, far from wicked men;
While we are left to mourn our loss, until our days shall end.

And when our time shall come at last, to meet them all again,
May we be found, faithful and true, with Christ our King to reign.

G. B. Bailey—1879
