Obituary

In Memoriam

The following lines have been contributed by Mrs. Wilbur Dunton of Rutland in memory of her brother, George A. Cutler of North Adams who died Oct. 11, 1905.

There was no rest for him but dying,
The lingering life could only anguish keep -
See how the peace of God is on him lying,
"For so He giveth His beloved sleep."

At morn, the kind "death angel" bent above him,
And touched the eyes that never more shall weep,
And lo! The sweetest of all slumbers fell upon him -
"For so He giveth His beloved sleep.

No pain nor grief shall ever now beride him,
His rest has come; no toiling up the steep,
Know that some day we shall lie down beside him -
"For so He giveth His beloved sleep."

Oh blessed sleep! And oh! More blessed making,
From earth's distress, to Heaven's delight to leap,
the night all past the glorious morning breaking -
"For so He giveth His beloved sleep."
