Accept these tears, a daily tribute paid,
Now at thy grave a mournful offering made.
While here thy sacred ashes mould'ring lie,
And thy pure spirit soars above the sky,
Whilst Angels at thy shrine their vigils keep,
I claim the sad, sad privilege to weep:
To weep, till pitying Heaven shall bid ascend
The regions of delight, to meet my friend.
