A wife, domestic, good, and pure, Like snail, should keep within her door;
But not, like snail, with silver track, Place all her wealth upon her back.
O Word of God incarnate . . . It is the golden casket Where gems of truth are stored; It is the heaven-drawn picture Of Thee, the Living Word.
For all the saints who from their labors rest, Who, to the world their steadfast faith confessed, your name, O Jesus, be forever blessed Alleluia!
