The pale eclipse of mind,
The deathless ray behind :
From Death's dominion here,—
From every mortal fear,-

Shining no where but in the dark ; What mysteries do lie beyond thy dust, Could man outlook that mark !
Green earth closed lately o’er ;
For those who “ die no more.”
Dread portals of the grave; But not in dull decay they sleep
Whom Jesus died to save.
