[underlined]THIS IS OUR NIGHT[/underlined]

This is our night, this hour was blest for us,
Cherished in Hope, nurtured and tended
By two hearts’ Love when Hope seems gone;
All loneliness dies now. Pain is ended
O Love! This peace so well deserved,
This, our one Heaven, is here, is won!
And weary hearts, so long desirous
Each for this joy, again are light.
Such Love will be from Death preserved:
This, our hearts’ hour. This is our night.

7 Mar 44.
Worthing – Tuddenham.
