From The Loss Of The Marion Rogers Published in The Fisherman's Advocate, March 2, 1962

How sad to hear the children cry,
How sad to hear the deathbell ring,
And notice in the funeral march
Their stricken kin walk sorrowing.
How sad to think of broken homes,
For who among us can forbear
The anguish of a bleeding heart,
The touching sight of vacant chair.

O God who reigns in heaven above,
Great Ruler of the sea and land,
Bow down Thine ear to my request,
O help me this to understand.
Why call from earth such men as those
Who put their constant trust in Thee,
Why fill some loving hearts with pain,
And yet the worthier go free?
