Elijah's mantle drops, the prophet dies;
His earthy manson quits and mounts the skies.
----So Shepard's gone.
His precious dust, death's prey, indeed is here,
But's nobler breath 'mong seraph's does appear;
He joins the adoring crowds about the throne,
He's conquered all, and now he wears the crown.
