She was the darling and idol of the home and loved by all who knew her. If there ever was an angel, she certainly is one. There’s a pair of little hands laid to rest forever more. Two tiny dimpled cheeks Who’s rich blossoming is o’er. Death has sealed two little eyes, Which will no more smile or week, Tiny windows of the soul. Darling baby’s gone to sleep. There’s another bud removed, ‘’’Er she felt the blight of sin. God has opened wide the door, Darling baby has passed in, She’ll awaken in fairer land; Where the angel voices sin, There the flowerett will expand And loving perfection bring. Angels bore her softly home So for her we must not weep; Softly to the doorway come, Darling baby’s gone to sleep.
