A cherub, usually represented as a chubby child with wings, is recognized as a heavenly being. The cherub symbolizes the innocence and purity of children. These figures typically adorn the graves of young children.
Jesus said, “Suffer little children to come unto me.”
And forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of God
This babe that lays so near my heart ,
It was God’s will that we must part.
My Judge knows all things day and night,
He can’t do wrong it must be right.
A loving thought
A silent tear
A happy memory
Of one so dear
Sleep on my sweet one
Sleep! So early gone
To earth a child is lost
To Heaven a cherub born
Angel wings, upon the clouds your body softly sleeps
As the flowers are all made sweeter
By the sunshine and the dew
So this old world was made brighter
By the life of a babe like you.
Hush now little one, no more tears you have to keep
