Weep not, dear friends, for he is free from all sorrow and pain. We cannot call him back but we can go to him, so let us live that when the end comes, we can say as he said, "Weep not, for I am going to be with Jesus."

The angels came with silent tread, and gathered 'round our darling's bed,
And to their shining home above, They bore him on their arms of love.
