W

E are but of such mortal mould,

Nos exaudi, Domine !
That the night can scarce withhold

In its shroud our sins from Thee.

That night comes, when Thou shalt come

Nos exaudi, Domine!
From Thy home to this sad home,

And die for us upon the tree.

If then the stars shine out so bright,

Nos exaudi, Domine !
That Thou seest by their light,

How great our sins and many be;

Thou wilt come, as they were not,

Nos exaudi, Domine !
Or as they were all forgot,

Or forgiven, Lord, by Thee.

H. P. HORNE.

SAY TO THEE, DO THOU REPEAT

TO THE FIRST MAN THOU MAYEST MEET IN LANE, HIGHWAY, OR OPEN STREET

I

THAT HE AND WE AND ALL MEN MOVE

UNDER A CANOPY OF LOVE,
AS BROAD AS THE BLUE SKY ABOVE;

THAT DOUBT AND TROUBLE, FEAR AND PAIN AND ANGUISH, ALL ARE SHADOWS VAIN, THAT DEATH ITSELF SHALL NOT REMAIN ;

THAT WEARY DESERTS WE MAY TREAD,
A DREARY LABYRINTH MAY THREAD,
THROUGH DARK WAYS UNDERGROUND BE LED;

YET, IF WE WILL ONE GUIDE OBEY,
THE DREARIEST PATH, THE DARKEST WAY
SHALL ISSUE OUT IN HEAVENLY DAY;

AND WE, ON DIVERS SHORES NOW CAST,
SHALL MEET, OUR PERILOUS VOYAGE PAST,
ALL IN OUR FATHER'S HOUSE AT LAST.
