FOR COUNTRY CHURCHYARDS


COLLECTED AND ARRANGED

BY

AUGUSTUS J. C. HARE,

OF UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, OXFORD.


"The earthe buildeth on the earthe castles and towers
The earthe sayeth to the earthe, all shall be ours,
The earthe walketh on the earthe glitt'ring like golde,
The earthe goeth to the earthe sooner than it wolde." Melrose Abbey.

To
All Christian Mourners
This Volume is Dedicated,
In the hope that it may help them to find
The fulfilment of the promise,
"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall
be comforted."
