Paul Dahl obituary
Paul Luverne Dahl, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dahl, was born at Lyle, Minn., March 2nd, in the year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Sixteen. He attended the Lyle Public School, and at the time of his death was a Junior in the High School. He was an active Boy Scout and daily lived up to the teachings set forth by this organization. Paul surrendered his life to God four years ago, at the age of thirteen, during the Taylor evangelistic campaign at Lyle. He leaves to mourn his death his father and mother, one brother, Lloyd, and two sisters, Genevieve, and Mrs. Evangeline Krause.
Paul dear, Paul dear, lingers no more
Here in this vale of tears.
He is in a better home
Where holy angels roam
Ended his earthly career.
He loved the Saviour who goeth before,
Author of joy and peace,
Now on a brighter shore
Happy forever more,
His joy will never cease.
Earth ties are broken, fond hearts
Sad is the farewell scene.
See through the gloom, a gleam
For all who are redeemed
And by the blood made clean.
Though we be parted, yet we shall
At the dear Saviour's feet,
Praise Him in robes of white
Where never cometh the night,
We'll stand in Him complete.
