When of love the midnight beam...
Page 46 - Willing hands to lead the blind, Bind the wounded, feed the poor ; Love, embracing all our kind, Charity, with liberal store : Teach us, O thou heavenly King, Thus to show our grateful mind, Thus the accepted offering bring, Love to thee, and all mankind.
Page 15 - Watchman, will its beams alone Gild the spot that gave them birth? Traveller, ages are its own: See! it bursts o'er all the earth.
Page 57 - AGAIN the Lord of life and light Awakes the kindling ray, Unseals the eyelids of the morn, And pours increasing day.
