A Hymn to the Tune of Windham by David Read.

The words by Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) are based on "Dies Irae." They are followed by a copy of the music.


Burial of the Dead -- Second Tune

That day of wrath, that dreadful day,
When heaven and earth shall pass away,
What power shall be the sinner's stay?
How shall he meet that dreadful day?

When, shrivelling like a parched scroll,
The flaming heavens together roll;
When, louder yet, and yet more dread,
Swells the high trump that wakes the dead;

Lord, on that day, that wrathful day,
When man to judgment wakes from clay,
Be thou the trembling sinner's stay,
Though heaven and earth shall pass away!
Amen
