        The face on earth we will see no more.
    We fancy we hear in the twilight
        Your voice and your step everywhere;
    Our eyes will for ever turn and
        Rest on your vacant chair.
    We trust when you enter death's river,
        And your barque steered clear of the rocks,
    That a merciful Saviour was waiting
        To bear you safely across.
    When days are dark and friends are few,
        Dear Eddy, how we will think of you.
Thy will be done.

    I cannot kneel beside his grave,
        For he sleeps in the sacred sea;
    And not one gentle whispering wave,
        Will tell the spot to me.
    But though unseen by human eyes,
        Though mortals know it not;
    Our Saviour knoweth where he lies,
        And Angels mark the spot.
Sadly missed by his sorrowing Wife,
