188            Songs and Ballads
And see those youthful faces With hearts and courage strong,
Who went forth to save the Union In the days of sixty-one.
8     To the mothers of our city
Whose bodies they lie here, Whose words brought hope and happiness
To memory ever dear; Their spirits passed to that bright shore
And there's sure to come a day When you '11 meet them on that morning
When the mists have rolled away.
9     Mayor Robinson's body it lies here
With Charles L. Chalmers too, And Palmers whose long years were spent
In pleasant hours with you; They've passed beyond to that bright shore
And in this life no more be seen And to the friends they left behind,
Will keep their memory ever green.
io The loving mother, she lies here
The gentle sister too, The manly brother's voice is still
The father loved so true; They all rest here in old Mt. Hope,
To earth their bodies given And though they rest beneath the sod
I hope their souls in heaven.
