(ar lean ón leathanach roimhe)
"A friend in need is a friend indeed"
And no better ever trod,
True by good example he did lead
The way to the Almighty God.
Or with him converse sweet;
He was well read versed in lore
His equals were hard to meet.Friends will miss his sound advise
And his warm clasp of hand,
His voice, so clear, so sweet and nice,
His discourses so enobled and grand.And in the service of thy Lord,
With age he had grown hoary;
May Heaven above be his reward
With a crown of glory.
