Seite 253 - O gentle Sleep, Nature's soft nurse, how have I frighted thee, That thou no more wilt weigh my eyelids down. And steep my senses in forgetfulness...
Seite 14 - Wrapped in her sable robe, with silent step Comes to our bed and breathes it in our ears ; — Night and the dawn, bright day and thoughtful eve, All time, all bounds, the limitless expanse, As one vast mystic instrument, are touched By an unseen, living Hand, and conscious chords Quiver with joy in this great jubilee. The dying hear it ; and, as sounds of earth Grow dull and distant, wake their passing souls To mingle in this heavenly harmony.
Seite 14 - Tis in the gentle moonlight ; 'Tis floating 'midst day's setting glories ; Night, Wrapped in her sable robe, with silent step Comes to our bed, and breathes it in our ears...
Seite 13 - Celestial voices Hymn it unto our souls : according harps, By angel fingers touched when the mild stars Of morning sang together, sound forth still The song of our great immortality...
