There's a rest for little children
From sin and sorrow free,
Where every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.
When we see a precious blossom,
That we tendered with such care,
Rudely taken from our blossom,
How our aching hearts despair.
Round its little grave we linger,
Till the setting sun is low,
Feeling all our hopes have perished,
With a flower uncherished so.
He's resting now on Jesus' breast,
He's looking in his blessed face,
He's entered on an endless rest,
Safe in that bright celestial place.

Her memory will never grow old
Her death was a blow
Upon our hearts it fell
Called home without a word
Not even a sad farewell.
For as peace comes after suffering
And love a reward of pain
So after earth comes Heaven
And out of our loss "her gain"
