"Cross of my Redeemer from the thraldom of sin Here would I now revered friendship begin Here as I gaze on this beautiful "mark" Would I to thy lessons, with love ever hark. Young lady whose taste and refinement appears In this emblem of love through agony's tears Receive from a friend who values this prize His love and hope for thy bliss in the skies. The industrious worth so tender and kind The choice of the pure and gentle sweet mind To thee I cling Thou Savior dear Without one doubt or trembling of fear. I seem to hear thee in sweetest of lay As singing of mercies at close of the day Like Mary thou'lt cling at the foot of the cross And count all to it foreign as merest of dross. So long as I live 'twill remind me of thee Of our Savior before whom sorrows will flee And wherever I be wherever I roam It will point unto heaven as my sweetest home."
