From Holder's somewhat grandiloquently titled Op. 14
Lyrics: Frances Greensted

Early remov'd from bleak misfortune's pow'r,
Secure from storms, here rests a tender flow'r.
Short tho' its bloom, the op'ning bud began
To promise fair when ripen'd into man.
Sleep on sweet babe: heaven's all-gracious king
Hath to eternal summer changed thy spring.
