Treasure Island

Psalm 70


Oh come and rescue me, God,
Yahweh come quickly and help me!
Shame and dishonour on those
who are out to kill me!

Down with them! Disgrace on those
who enjoy my misfortune!
May they be aghast with shame,
those who say to me, 'Aha! Aha! '

But joy and gladness
for all who seek You!
To all who love Your saving power
give constant cause to say, 'God is great! '

To me, poor wretch,
come quickly, God!
My helper, my saviour, Yahweh,
come without delay!

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
