IN MEMORY OF J. T. JONES, PENYCRUG. Mother, mother, let me kiss thee, Once again before I die Let me clasp my arms around thee, On thy bosom let me lie. Earth is fleeting, fast decaying From my weary, weary, sightâ Dearest mother, let me kiss thee, Ere I bid a long Good night!" Ah how sorely it doth grieve me, Gentle mother, thus to know That I did not live to cheer thee, When thou art oppressed with woe. Thus to leave thee, and for ever, From my home and friends to part; Every tie of love to sever, That have bound my hopeful heart. Oh 'tis painful, very painful, Thus to meet the silent tomb, Torn from all that's bright and lovely, To endure a fearful gloom Forced from all the little pleasures That have ioy'd my youthful mind, Innocence and love and friendship, Every cherish'd thing resigu'd. Tlark the little birds are singing Sweetly now their evening lay See: the glorious sufi is setting Oh! how beautiful its ray Farewell all ye lovely visions, Beauteous nature fare thee well Longer I may not behold thee, Native earth farewell, farewell. Mother, mother, I am going, To a land of peace and rest, Where the bitter tear of anguish J, Never dews the aching breast, u Where the soul escaped for ever v From its tenement of clay, j-i;- Beams irradiate with splendour KOf a bright eternal day. Mother, mother, I must leave thee, See the clammy death frost now, Herald of the king of terror, Standing fearful on'my brow, Ah! the beauteous peaceful heaven Of that blessed land, in sight, Mother, mother, Jesus calls me, I must go "Good night," "Good night." â â . £ recob, June 14tk, 18f5r;.
