In Memory of Our Dead President

A nation is now in mourning;
     A noble life made brief;
All bow your heads in sorrow,
     We have lost our noble chief.

He was loved by all, both white and black;
     He was loved by rich and poor,
And sadness overwhelmed our land,
     When Death approached his door.

But now his battles over,
     His victory has been won,
His dying words ring in our ear,
     It is God’s way—His will be done.

670 George St., Memphis, Tenn.
