—Cantabitis, Arcades, inquit, Montibus haec vestris: foli cantare periti Arcades. O mihi tum quam molliter ossa quiescant Vestra meos olim si fistula dicat amores! Virgil, Ecl. x:31.

And they sang as it were a new song before the throne;—and no man could learn that song, but the redeemed from the earth. Rev. 14:3.

As sorrowful—yet always rejoicing, 2 Cor. 6:10.
