Cotton Mather: On the Death of his Son

The motto, inscribed on the grave stone,
“Reserved for a glorious Resurrection.”

The exhortation of the Lord,
With consolation speaks to us;
As to his children his good word,
We must remember speaking thus:
My child, when God shall chasten thee,        5
His chastening do thou not contemn:
When thou his just rebukes dost see,
Faint not rebuked under them.
The Lord with fit afflictions will
Correct the children of his love;        10
He doth himself their father still,
By his most wise corrections prove.
Afflictions for the present here
The vexed flesh will grievous call;
But afterwards there will appear,        15
Not grief, but peace, the end of all.
