Stone No.756-2

 

Inscription.

1832. Erected by Robert Nicoll, Merchant, Dundee, and Janet Caithness his spouse, in memory of their two infant sons, James who died 23rd April 1830, aged 16 days; Robert, who died 17th June 1831, aged 29 days.

Sweet Babes! on earth no more-

Their souls enlarg'd to Angel's size,

Joins in the triumphs of the skies,

Adores the Grace that brought them there,

Without a wish, without a care;

That wash'd their souls in Calvary's stream,

That shorten'd life's distressing dream,

Short griefs, short pains, Sweet Babes! were thine,

New Joys, Eternal and Divine.
