One more glimpse of the sun
One more glimpse of the sun,
One more breath trom the sea,
One more kiss from my darling one --
Then, Death, come speedily!
One more smile from my sweet,
One more clasp of a hand,
One more sound of returning feet --
Then come, that Better Land!
One more passionate prayer
To Christ, that He shall be
My Guide as I climb the Golden Stair --
Then come, Eternity!
