But know that thou must render up the dead,
  And with high interest too! they are not thine
    But only in thy keeping for a season,
      Till the great promis'd day of restitution;

          Of strong-lung'd cherub shall alarm thy captives,
            And rouse the long, long sleepers into life,
              Daylight and liberty.
      - Hugh Blair

            Death as a friend!
