The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, June 7, 1906

To the memory of Elsie, Helen & Joseph Cackler.

The Angel of death with his slow, silent tread
Has knocked at the door once more,
And dear little Joseph, on pinions of love,
Has been wafted to Heaven's bright shore.

First little Elsie, the light of the home
Was called from our arms away;
Soon Helen bade farewell to us all
And was borne to the realms of day.

Our home is so loud since the babies have gone
With jesus forever to be;
Their dear little forms that we all loved so well
In this world we will nevermore see.

God who sees and knows all looked down
from His home
With eyes of tenderest love;
And planted the flowers we loved so well here
In His beautiful garden above.

The storms of temptation and high winds of sin
Will not come to your babes over there;
But the angels of God in that beautiful home
Will watch them with tenderest care.

Dear Parents, look up to the Savior, Who said
"Let the little ones come unto me,"
And some happy day the summons will come
To join your precious ones three.

And in Heavenly bliss while the ages roll,
You will dwell in the Land of Day,
And God, Himself with tenderest touch,
Will wipe all your tears away.
