By Nebo's lonely mountain, On this side Jordan's ware, In a vale in the land of Moab There lies a lonely grave. And no man dug that sepulchre, And no man saw it e'er ; For the angels of God upturned tho Bod, And laid the dead man there That was the grandest funeral That ever passed on earth, But no man heard the trampling Or saw the train go forth, Noiselessly as the daylight Comes when the night is done, And the crimfon streak on ocean's cheek Grows into the great sun ; Noiselessly as the Springtime Her crown of verdure weaves, And all the trees on all the hills Opeu their thousand leaves ; bo, wiinout Eouna 01 music. Or voice of them that wept, Silently do we from the mountain's crown, The great procession swept.
