On the Grave of a Child in Morwenstow Churchyard by Robert Stephen Hawker

Those whom God loves die young;
They see no evil days;
No falsehood taints their tongue,
No wickedness their ways.

Baptized — and so made sure
To win their safe abode;
What could we pray for more?
They die, and are with God.
