The Forgotten Child
"Oh say it to me not that I have forgot!
"Oh say to me not ALAS!
"But yet the water has taken him for to much time has passed"
"Yet like glass he seems so bright and heavenly white"
"But he has no life"
"OH have mercy" "Have mercy on your slave!"
"Do not render your hand to put me in my grave!"
"Save my soul!" "For his is gone!"
"Forgive me for my wrong!"
"For I will sing a song of sadness all my days and all the while"
For I have forgotten my only child"
