Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
Gustav Gottheil
By George Alexander Kohut
GOD healed him while he slept,
  And took His shepherd home,
And many thousand tender hands
  Now bear him to the tomb.
His life was crowded with the deeds        5
  Which crown his calm repose,
Upon his gleaming coat of arms,
  No guilty glory glows.
Dream on, O Prince in Israel, dream,
  In thy celestial home,        10
While many thousand loyal friends
  Chant Kaddish at the tomb.
