The Child Seeing the Funeral of Another Child

by Cotton Mather

Cotton Mather

I in the Burying Place may see
Graves not so long as I.
From Deaths Arrest no Age is free;
Young Children too may Dy.
My God , may such an awful sight
Awakening be to me!
Oh! that by Early Grace I might
For Death prepared be.
