    I think, whatever mortals crave,
    With impotent endeavor,
    A wreath--a rank--a throne--a grave--
    The world goes round forever;
    I think that life is not too long,
    And therefore I determine,
    That many people read a song,
    Who will not read a sermon.

She makes her hand hard with labour, and her heart soft with
pity: and when winter evenings fall early (sitting at her merry

fortune . . . and fears no manner of ill because she means none.

A song of hate is a song of Hell;
Some there be who sing it well.
Let them sing it loud and long,
We lift our hearts in a loftier song:
We life our hearts to Heaven above,
Singing the glory of her we love,
England.

Builders, raise the ceiling high,
Raise the dome into the sky,
Hear the wedding song!
For the happy groom is near,
Tall as Mars, and statelier,
Hear the wedding song!
