    A brother has fallen! In battle he fell!
    And deeply afflicted, today,
    We met in the temple he loved so well;
    Our hearts mournful tribute to pay.
    Dear kindred he left, and a home that he loved,
    Tears fell as he bid them adeau;
    Yet “on to the rescue’ he fearlessly moved.
    With courage the foe to subdue.
    He hasted, and felt for his country he’d fight,
    And danger and suffering he’d bear,
    And peril his life in defence of the right,
    Confronting the enemy there.
    His warfare is ended, his last battle o’re,
    In the morn of his glory he fell,
    While angels in triumph his sweet spitit bore
    Away with his saviour to dwell.
    No more shall we see him, and never again
    Will he meet us to offer up prayer;
    At home for his footsteps friends listen in vain—
    He’ll come not—no more he’ll be there.
    peace, then, to his ashes,beneath the green sod,
    We will not disturb him again,
    His spirit shall rest in the garner of God,
    A victor in glory to reign.
