Hymn/Song Information

By earth hemmed in by earth oppressed




By earth hemmed in, by earth oppressed,
T is hard to labour, hard to pray;
And of the week, for prayer and rest,
Weve but one Sabbath day.


But purer spirits walk above,
Who worship alway; who are blest
With an upspringing might of love
That makes all labour, rest.


Father, while here, we would arise
In spirit to the that realm; and there
Be every act a sacrifice,
And every thought a prayer!
