The Widow and the Fatherless

As on my road delaying,
The stream's cool waters by,
My thoughts in fancy straying,
I heard a plaintive cry
There may be hope in Heaven, -
For us no hope is here
Oh, why was joy thus given,
So soon to disappear!

Around the grave was weeping
A widowed, orphaned band
Beneath their feet was sleeping
The husband, father, friend
And as their sorrows swelling
Broke forth midst sigh and tear,
Again these words are telling,
Alas, no hope is here!

The stream's cool waters flowing
No longer sung to me,
The soft spring sunbeams glowing
Were cheerless all to see
For still that widowed mother,
And still those orphans dear,
Bewailed my buried Brother,-
Alas, no hope is here!

My Brother? yes, forsaken,
These lov'd ones round thee mourn
Too soon from friendship taken,
Dear Brother, thou art gone!
Gone from a cold world's sighing,
From sorrow and from fear,
But left these mourners crying,
Alas, no hope is here!

These tears, my heart, are holy!
These sighs by anguish driven,
This mourning group so lowly,
Are messengers of Heaven
And so will I receive them,
As God shall give me cheer,
Protect them and relieve them,
And teach them Hope Is Here!
