“I have four little darlings waiting for me
On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea,
Not impatiently wait our darlings there
For smiles light up their brows so fair,
And their harps ring out so clear,
So soothingly sweet to faith’s listening ear.
And they live in the smiles of the Saviour’s love
Who so early called our darlings above.

I have four little darlings to welcome me
When I too shall stand on the crystal sea
When the “Great Refiner” his image may trace
In the heart he has won by his saving grace.
And in the robes of Christ’s own righteousness drest,
My soul shall seek the home of the blest,
On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea
My darlings shall wait to welcome me.”

R., Stilesboro, Sept. 1873



Died in Bartow county, Ga., Sept. 2d 1873, PAUL infant son of Rev. Wm. H. and Mrs. Rebecca A. FELTON, aged one year and eight months.

“Thus star by star declines,
Till all are passed away,
As morning high and higher shines
To pure and perfect day;
Nor sink those stars in empty night,
But hide themselves in Heaven’s own light,”

L. J. D.
