Rev. P. D. Gurley, D. D., 1865
Rest, noble Martyr! rest in peace:|
Rest with the true and brave,
Who, like thee, fell in Freedom's cause,
The nation's life to save.
2. Thy name shall live while time endures,
3. These deeds shall be thy monument,
4. This consecrated spot shall be|
To Freedom ever dear;
And Freedom's sons of every race
Shall weep and worship here,
5. O God! before whom we, in tears,
"To be sung at the grave in Springfield.", includes: Doxology.
By the Deceased President's Pastor, the Rev. P. D. Gurley, D. D.
