Song for the Funeral... (MM)






funeraldirge
I.
“Solemn strikes the funeral chime,
Notes of our departing time;
As we journey here below,
Through a pilgrimage of woe!”
p. 118

II.
“Mortals, now indulge a tear,
For Mortality is here:
See how wide her trophies wave
O’er the slumbers of the grave!

III.
“Here another guest we bring.
Seraphs of celestial wing,
To our funeral altar come:
Waft this friend and brother home.

IV.
“Lord of all! below–above–
Fill our hearts with truth and love;
When dissolves our earthly tie,
Take us to thy Lodge on High.”
