     Death’s cruel dart has pierced our heart
     And bowed us down with grief,
     And beneath the silent sod
     Our darling Jenny sleeps.

     Oh Jenny must we give thee up,

     How can we drink this bitter cup
     And say a last, last farewell.
          By a Friend
     Rest in Jesus; the patient sufferer.
