A Tribute to the Memory of President McKinley

Today we lay away to rest
     Our noble, honored President;
Lord, can it be that it is best
     That this affliction should sent?

Were we so blind we could not see
     The awful curse of “Anarchy?”
Could we not awakened be
     In some other way by Thee?

“It is God’s way; His will be done:”
     So said he in his dying hour.
A Christian’s and a martyr’s crown he won,
     And left his name a living power.

“Nearer, my God, to Thee;”
     The song will ever to us be,
Since the words lingered on his lips
     When he passed to eternity.

In patient, trusting Christian faith,
     O, let us like him try to live;
Obedience and not rebelliousness
     Our Heavenly Father above to give.
