On the 9th ult., Elijah O. Hornbaker, aged 22 years, he died in full
hope of glory and a-- immortality.
Why should our tears in sorrow flow
When God recalls his own
And bids us leave a world of woe
For an immortal Crown?
His toils are past, his work is done,
And he is fully blest,
He fought the fight that victory won
And Entered into rest.
The flock must feel the shepherd loss's
And miss his tender care
But they who bear with joy the cross,
The crown shall soonest wear.
