700 (7.7.7.7.)

Fades the lovely blooming flow'r,

Smiling solace of an hour;

Soon our transient comforts fly;

Pleasure only blooms to die.

Lovely babe, how brief thy stay!

Short and hasty was thy day;

Ending soon thy sojourn here,

Pain or grief no more to bear.

Hard it is from thee to part!

Though it rend my aching heart,

Since an heir to glory's gone,

Let the will of God be done.

Pillowed on a Saviour's breast,

Sweetly sleep and softly rest;

When the joyful summons come,

Rise and soar to heav'n, your home.

May we meet to part no more

On fair heaven's peaceful shore,

There to fix our blest abode

With our Saviour and our God.
