Initiation Ode.

Harriet Annie Wilkins 1829 ( Bath, ) – 1888 ( Bath, )

Air--Belmont.
 

 

 
Hark! unto thee a voice doth speak,
A voice of heavenly breath,
And this, the solemn charge it gives,
Be faithful unto death.
 
Faithful as stars in heaven's blue skies,
Though dark clouds roll between,
Or rocks that show their signal lights
In tempest's wildest scene.
 
Faithful 'till death, which finally
Shall close thy mortal strife,
When thy reward shall surely be
The crown of endless life.
