     Strength to the weak, and, in an hour of need,
Over the suffering, mindless of his creed
     Or home, hath bent;

He has not lived in vain, and while he gives
     The praise to Him, in whom he moves and lives,
With thankful heart;
     He gazes backward, and with hope before,
Knowing that from his works he nevermore
     Can henceforth part.
