Can we, whose souls are lighted
Waft, waft, ye winds, his story,
AN INTROIT TO BE SUNG BETWEEN THE LITANY AND COMMUNION SERVICE.
O most merciful!
BEFORE THE SACRAMENT.
BREAD of the world, in mercy broken ;
By whom the words of life were spoken,
Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
And be thy feast to us the token
AT A FUNERAL.
BENEATH our feet and o'er our head
Beneath us lie the countless dead,
Their names are graven on the stone,
And ere another day is done,
Death rides on every passing breeze,
Each season has its own disease,
Our eyes have seen the rosy light
And Fate descend in sudden night
Our eyes have seen the steps of age Halt feebly towards the tomb,
And yet shall earth our hearts engage, And dreams of days to come
