NO EARTHY SUMMER'S RAY


1 It is no earthly summer's ray
That sheds this golden brightness 'round,
Crowning with heav'nly light the day
The princes of the Church were crowned.
2 The blessed seer to whom was giv'n
The hearts of men to teach and school,
And he that keeps the keys of heav'n,
Reserved for those that own his rule.
3 Fathers of mighty Rome, whose word
Shall pass the doom of life or death,
By humble cross and bleeding sword,
Well have they won their laurel wreath.
