Jesus, Mercy. Mary, help.
Of your charity, Pray for the repose of the soul of
WILLIAM WARREN CUPIT,
The dearly loved Husband of Catherine Mary Cupit,
of Corby, Grantham,
Who was Killed in Action, somewhere in France, Sept. 16th, 1917,
Aged 32 Years
Fortified with all the rites of Holy Church.
O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the soul of thy servant William Warren, bring him from the shadow of exile to the bright home of heaven, where we trust Thou and Thy Blessed Mother have woven for him a crown of unfading bliss. Amen.
Somewhere in France in a hero's grave,
Lies our dear one among the brave;
The blow was sharp, the loss severe,
To part with one we loved so dear.
He did his duty and his best,
God grant to him eternal rest;
A loving husband and father kind,
A beautiful memory left behind.
Someday we hope to meet him, sometime we know not when.
To clasp his hand in the better land and never part again.
No one knows the parting, or what the parting cost,
But God in his great mercy has gained what we have lost.
Farewell, my wife and children dear,
You did not think my time so near,
Weep no for me, 'tis all in vain,
But hope to meet in heaven again.
GOD'S WILL BE DONE.
