CONSECRATION, by            
First Line: Silence, - and a muted bell rings
Last Line: At calvary!


Silence, -- and a muted bell rings;
Old words are spoken in an ancient tongue;
And music ceases; before these Holy things
Be song unsung.

Within this Holy place none trod
Until the High Priest opened wide the door;
Now God and man are mingled in one God!
Kneel and adore!

Across the wine-cup trembling hands
Move cruciform, -- "these things -- remembering Me";
Lifting a deathless Christ, the cross stands
At Calvary!
