Dear Louis, you have gone from us,
You meant so much to me.
Your soul we humbly give to God,
To spend eternity.
Your mother dear, your father, too,
Have waited there so long,
Kind friends so dear are waiting there
For you to join their throng.
God's will is ours; he gave us you;
Your soul is his indeed;
Return to him, Oh Louis dear;
His earnest call we heed.
Written at the bedside of her dying husband by Mrs. Louis Riney.
