Written on laying the corner-stone of The Mother Church

       Laus Deo, it is done!
       Rolled away from loving heart
       Is a stone.
       Lifted higher, we depart,
       Having one.

       Laus Deo, - on this rock
       (Heaven chiselled squarely good)
       Stands His church, -
       God is Love, and understood
       By His flock.

MISC 400

       Laus Deo, night star-lit
       Slumbers not in God's embrace;
       Be awake;
       Like this stone, be in thy place:
       Stand, not sit.

       Grave, silent, steadfast stone,
       Dirge and song and shoutings low
       In thy heart
       Dwell serene, - and sorrow?  No,
       It has none,
       Laus Deo!
