Depart thou Sainted Spirit, Wing thy happy flight,
To the bright realms of everlasting light;
Yet fondly hover oer thy lonely friend,
In nightly visions resignation send:
Cheer his great mind attune his Soul to peace
Till in this world his hopeless griefs may cease:
And when his Spirit quits this mortal clay
Lead him to heavenly bliss and guide him on his way.>
To bliss eternal guide him on his way.
Louisa. C. Adams.
