They Are Waiting For Our Petitions

They are waiting for our petitions silent and calm
Their lips no prayer can utter, no suppliant psalm.
we have made the all too weary with long delay
For the souls in their still agony, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

For the soul thou holdest dearest let prayers arise
The voice of love is mighty and will pierce the skies.
Waste not in selfish weeping one precious day
But speeding thy love to heaven, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

For the soul by all forgotten, even its own,
By its nearest and its dearest, left all alone,
Whisper a "De profundis", or gently lay
Alms in some beggar's outstretched palm, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

For the soul that is nearest heaven that sees the gate,
Now ajar and the light within and yet must wait,
Ere the angels come to convey it in bright array
For the eager soul so near to joy, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

The soul that most loved Our Lady, for Our Lady's love,
Speed with thy supplication to its home above,
And our Mother in benediction, her hand will lay
Tenderly on thy bowed-down head, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

For the love of the Heart of Jesus, they love it too,
By all the sweet affections that once they knew,
As thou hopest in thy utomost need to find thy stay
In the prayers of those who loved thee once, good christian pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

Our loving lips can cry aloud the pleading word
Through all that silent kingdom unknown, unheard.
O canst thou turn from their bitter want coldly away
Kneel humbly at the altar's foot, christian, and pray.
Requiescant in pace, requiescant in Pace.

Thanks. What a beautiful hymn. Have been looking for this for All Souls' Day tomorrow. You've saved a busy priest from half an hour's typing!

Delighted - sorry to have made so many typos but I am sure you fixed them, Father D. I used it today at a funeral and then concocted a chorale prelude along the lines of "Jesu Joy" with a slow, jig accompaniment - I often do this with "old" hymns and find it opens a seam of nostalgia forr many people, including the present writer!

Guest - can you help with the music for this hymn? I can't find it in any of my hymnals - I can pretty much work an accompaniment out for myself but I just want to check anyway. Thanks in advance - a needy organist!

I have a copy of the organ edition of "The St Andrew Hymnal" If anyone requires a copy of a specific hymn from it, please do get in contact. Also many older Pre Vatican II / Victorian hymnals, "Crown of Jesus Hymn book", "Parochial Hymn Book" etc.
