First Line: O sacrificial throng whose live
Last Line: Upon your bier are laid.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Martyrs

O sacrificial throng whose lives
Build up the yawning deeps
O'er which we pass reflectively
To broader lights and sweeps.

Know, that we hold with reverence
The signal price you paid,
And all our trophies, one by one,
Upon your bier are laid.
