Du som på den arme tænkte
hvem ej himlen lyset skænkte
om hvis blik er evig nat
til din grav du monne skue
glædens tårer venskabs lue
og naturens blomsterskat.

Billedet af dine kære
du kan i dit hjerte bære
ak det skænkedes os ej
det skænkedes os ej,
men din ædle dåd skal finde
i vort bryst et helligt minde,
ja din ædle dåd skal finde
i vort bryst et helligt minde
og strø blomster på vor grav,
og strø blomster på vor grav.
