from the dream of gerontius

ANGEL:
Thy judgment now is near, for we are come / Into the veiled presence of our God.

SOUL:
I hear the voices that I left on earth.

ANGEL:
It is the voice of friends around thy bed, / Who say the 'Subvenite' with the priest. / Hither the echoes come; before the Throne / Stands the great Angel of the Agony, / The same who strengthen’d Him, what time He knelt / Lone in that garden shade, bedew’d with blood. / That Angel best can plead with Him for all / Tormented souls, the dying and the dead."
