Funeral Dirge

By David Vinton

Solemn strikes the fun′ral chime,
Notes of our departing time
As we journey here below,
Through a pilgrimage of woe!

Mortals now indulge a tear,
For mortality is near!
See how wide her trophies wave
O′er the slumbers of the grave!

Here another guest we bring
Seraphs of celestial wing,
To our fun′ral Altar come,
Waft this friend and brother home.

Lord of all! belowabove
Fill our hearts with truth and love
When dissolves our earthly tie,
Take us to Thy Lodge on high.
