|Think, O Lord, in mercy
On the souls of those
Who in faith gone from us
Now in death repose.
Here 'mid stress and conflict
Toils can never cease:
There, the warfare ended,
Bid them rest in peace.
|Often were they wounded
In the deadly strife:
Heal them Good Physician
With the balm of life.
Every taint of evil, frailty and decay,
Good and Gracious Saviour
Cleanse and purge away.
|Rest eternal grant them,
After weary fight:
Shed on them the radiance
Of Thy heavenly light.
Lead them onward, upward
To the Holy Place
Where Thy saints made perfect
Gaze upon Thy face.
Memorial presented by The Countess Beauchamp 7th August
The back of the panel reads:
May we meet our beloved dead in the mount
of God, where the understanding is rich, the will is
satisfied, the affections are all love and joy, and our
weaknesses and dishonours shall be changed to the strength
and beauties of the sons of God.
O Lord our Saviour, who dost feed Thy
faithful people in green pastures and leadest them to the
waters of comfort, turn not away Thy servants from that
pleasant land of rest, where with the Father and the Son
Thou livest and reignest ever, one God, world without end -
O eternal Lord God, who beholdest all
souls in life, we beseech Thee to shed forth upon Thy whole
church in Paradise and on earth the bright beams of Thy light
and heavenly comfort, and grant that we, following the good
examples of those who have served Thee here and are at rest,
may, with them, at length, enter into Thine unending joy,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
