O blessed life of service and of love . .
O Christ of God! whose life and death .
Of all the thoughts of God that are . .
Oh, deem not they are blessed alone. .
*Oh for the peace that floweth like a river.
*Oh may I join the choir invisible
*Oh, yet we trust that somehow good . .

One adequate support . . . . .
*() strong soul, by what shore
*O thicker, deeper, darker growing . .
Our beloved have departed . . .

Servant of God, well done! . . . . . .
She waited for the summons, lengthening days.
Since thy Father's arm sustains thee . . . .
Sleep, tired cne, sleep. .
Sometime, when all life's lessons have been learned .
Straight and still the baby lies . .
Such beautiful, beautiful hands. .

Take them, O death, and bear away. .
The baby wept . . . . . . . . .
The dead are like the stars by day . .
*The face which duly as the sun . ..
The fragrance of the rose . . . .
The little feet that never trod . . . .
There is a Reaper whose name is Death . .
There is no death! The stars go down . . .
There is no flock, however watched and tended . .
There's not an hour but from some sparkling beach ...
They sat in peace in the sunshine
Those we love truly never die . . . . .
Thou that art strong to comfort. . . . . .

To pass through life beloved as few are loved .
To weary hearts, to mourning homes . . .
Twilight falls, a tiny maiden . . . .

We know not what it is, dear . . . . .
We must not doubt, or fear, or dread . . .
*We need some charmer, for our hearts are sore . .
We watched her breathing through the night . .
We wreathed about our darling's head . .
What shall I do with all the days and hours
What may we take into the vast forever . .
What did we ask with all our love for him ..
Where the mountains slope to the westward . .
*Who is the angel that cometh ? Life! . . .

Why shouldst thou fear the beautiful angel Death ? .
*Wilt thou not ope thy heart to know ? . . .
*Within this lowly grave a conqueror lies . . .
*Within the maddening maze of things
