Over the bills like music steals The hush of the twilight gray, While softly from the church tower high, AkIow with the Bun's last ray, Peals forth the bells In liquid song, Echo of the Heavenly throng. "All things on earth must die ! Heaven all sorrow heals!" Oyer the hills sweet memories come Of our life's bright joyous morn, Which promise gave of a full day, Whoso roses of thorns were shorn. O, softly ring, sweet memory bells. For o'er the hills there dwells, "My love who passed away, And now Is safe at home." Over the hills there Is no night, God's face a the sun doth shine. He wipeth away all our tears, In his compassion divine. Over the hills His angels sing, 1'raise our bells can only ring. "O, cast out all your fears, I'll make all wrongs right." Over the hills, some day my soul Shall joyfully wing Its way. When my work's done; It there shall live Among His blest for aye. O'er the hills I'll hear the song Hope's sweet bell has pealed so long, "Eternal life I give, yhile endless ages roll." . CORA LKB RAVN. PALO.
