[1386] was it that on that calm and beautiful Sabbath morning her endless day, her glorious Sabbath, her peaceful rest should begin. Fitting that, as gently she had lived, she should as gently the.
We watched her breathing through the night,
     Her breathing soft and low,
is in her breast the wave of life
     Kept heaving to and fro.

Our very hopes belied our fears,
     Our fears our hopes belied;
We thought her dying when she slept,
     And sleeping when she died.
