William McKinley

 

Our chieftain rests from sorrow and from pain,
     His mortal eyes are sealed with pleasant peace;
Ours is the grief and sorrow, his the gain.

We filled his days and nights with sober care;
     Now, by God’s grace, his happy spirit breathes
With his dear children a serener air.
