Excerpt from The Mind and the Heart
Blessed are the dead! For ever They are gone and are at rest; All their toils and labors ended They are quiet and are blessed. Then mourn for him that liveth, Him that plods in travail sore; Blessed are the dead that sleepeth, Blessed are t... hey evermore.
Weep for him that in life's journey, Is much tempted and beset; Weep for him by friends forgotten, Weep for him whom all forget. Weep for him, Whom care and sorrow Tosses hopeless on the shore Blessed are the dead that sleepeth, Blessed are they evermore.
Weep for the poor and needy, The down-trodden and oppressed, The long-tried and heavy-laden, The bone-wearied and distressed. Weep for the dead return not, And their requiem is said Weep! Weep weep on for ever, For the living, not the dead.
