II. Dirge: “Calm on the Bosom of thy God”
By Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1793–1835)
 
(Scene IX)

CALM on the bosom of thy God,
  Fair spirit! rest thee now!
E’en while with ours thy footsteps trode
  His seal was on thy brow.
 
Dust, to its narrow house beneath!        5
  Soul, to its place on high!
They that have seen thy look in death
  No more may fear to die.
