Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XVI. Crossed Hands and Closed Eyes
Dirge
By Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1793–1835)
 
CALM on the bosom of thy God,
  Fair spirit, rest thee now!
Even while with ours thy footsteps trod,
  His seal was on thy brow.
 
Dust, to its narrow house beneath!        5
  Soul, to its place on high!—
They that have seen thy look in death
  No more may fear to die.
