TRANSITION, by            
First Line: O lay again thy hand in mine
Last Line: Dear voice, speak on.
Subject(s): Angels; Death; Love - Nature Of; Transience; Dead, The; Impermanence

O lay again thy hand in mine,
The day is done;
O say again all joys divine
And earthly from my eyelids shine.
The sands are run.

I see the gleam of some far land
Where bright ones dwell;
Like presence of that angel-band,
I hear thy voice and feel thy hand.
Dear heart, farewell.

Love will not die but grow more fair
When earth is gone;
As I pass hence, I know not where,
Speak on dear voice through ambient air
And be one tone familiar there.
Dear voice, speak on.
