POPE LEO'S LAST PRATER.
A copy of Pope Leo's dying prayer.
written by himself and included In
volume, of verses presented py htm to
each of the cardinals of the Sacred
college on the occasion of his recent
Leo, now sets thy sun: Pale is Its dy
ing ray: .
Black night succeeds thy day.
Black night for thee: Wasted thy
frame: Life's blood sustains
No more thy shrunken veins.
Zteath casts his fatal dart: Robed for
the grave thy bones
Lie under thecold stones.
But my freed soul escapes her chalraT
and longs in flight
To reach the reajjwfof light
That lsh goal ehe seeks: Thither her
Grant, Lord, my anxious prayers.
That with the cittaen of heaven. God's
face and light.
May ever thrill my sight.
That I may see thy face. Heaven's
uneen, whose mother love
Has brought roe home above
To Thee, saved through the tangles
of perilous way,
I lift my grateful lay.
