In Sodus, May 17th, 1860, MARY LUCRETIA,
daughter of Daniel and Lucretia Bayless,
aged 10 months and 14 days.
The following poem accompanied the obituary and was written by Mrs. Joanna Ewings:
Dear parents dry your tears,
And hear my story:
Your Mary, she has gone
To the world of glory.
With her little glittering wings
Amongst the angles,
With her harp of golden strings,
She sings God's praises.
How oft will she look down
And see you weeping,
In the silence of the night,
When all are sleeping.
Methinks I hear her say,
In whispers lowly,
O, mother, weep no more,
For I'm in glory.
She is like the blooming rose,
She will bloom forever;
Her hair will ne'er grow gray,
Her face ne'er wither.
But you and I must fade,
Our time is running;
Going down unto the grave
From whence there's no returning.
With Jesus, her best friend,
And angles, shining,
On the banks of flowry beds,
Where there is no dying.
So strive to watch and pray,
Be meek and lowly;
And meet your Mary there,
In the realm of glory.
So parents dry your tears,
And mourn and grieve no more;
And meet your happy child
On Canaan's peaceful shore.
