How can we say, "God's will be done,"
When that great will must wrest
From heart and home their sweetest tie,
Our dearest and our best?

And yet there is no peace like this:
That when we let him go
From our frail human clasp, he went
With Christ who loved him so!

But life seems not the same to us,
Since we so sadly miss
That young, sweet face, that rare, sweet grace,
That gentle good-night kiss;

Those dear, strong hands, which ever sought
Their help and strength to give;
That brave, true soul, which, living right,
Taught others how to live.

But that short life, that bright, brief span,
Was not spent here in vain;
When "all is well." and hopes die not,
We'll find our boy again.

God's will be done! To us alone
The sorrow here is given;
For him sweet peace, eternal rest,
His Father's love and heaven.
