The pulse beats ten and intermits;
God nerve the soul that ne’er forgets
In calm or storm, by night or day,
Its steady toil, its loyalty.
[ . . . ]
[ . . . ]
The pulse beats ten and intermits;
God shield the soul that ne’er forgets.
[ . . . ]
[ . . . ]
The pulse beats ten and intermits;
God guide the soul that ne’er forgets.
[ . . . ]
[ . . . ] so tired, so weary,
The soft head bows, the sweet eyes close,
The faithful heart yields to repose.
