O blessed life of service and of love . .
One adequate support . . . . .
Servant of God, well done! . . . . . .
Take them, O death, and bear away. .
To pass through life beloved as few are loved .
Until we meet again, that is the meaning .
We know not what it is, dear . . . . .
Why shouldst thou fear the beautiful angel Death ? .
