IN MEMORIAM.

IN MEMORIAM.

LONDON:

EDWARD MOXON, DOVER STREET.

1850.

LONDON : BRADBURY AND EVANS, PRINTERS, WHITEFRIARS.

O

STRONG Son of God, immortal Love,

Whom we, that have not seen thy face,

By faith, and faith alone, embrace,
Believing where we cannot prove;

Thine are these orbs of light and shade ;

Thou madest Life in man and brute ;

Thou madest Death ; and lo, Thy foot Is on the skull which thou hast made.

Thou wilt not leave us in the dust :

Thou madest man, he knows not why ;

He thinks he was not made to die ;
And Thou hast made him : Thou art just.
