"Farewell, dear Ollie, thou has left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.

'Oh yes, dear Ollie, thy death has left
'An aching void in every heart,'
And as we glance at thy vacant seat,
From every eye a tear will start.

"None, none knew thee, Ollie, but to love,
And none spake thy name but to commend,
While every one who knew thee once,
Now mourns thy loss as an earnest friend.

"And now beside thy cold and silent tomb,
While our hearts with grief and anguish swell,
We consign thy spirit to God above
And bid thee, dear Ollie, a sad farewell."
