I loved to choose and see my path, but now Lead Thou me on!

Thus, in the stilly night...
Page 41 - YE sons of freedom, wake to glory! Hark! hark! what myriads bid you rise! Your children, wives, and grandsires hoary, Behold their tears, and hear their cries!

Th" avenging sword unsheath ; March on!
Page 15 - We shall sing on that beautiful shore, The melodious songs of the blest ; And our spirits shall sorrow no more, — Not a sigh for the blessing of rest !

Page 9 - It flooded the crimson twilight, Like the close of an Angel's Psalm, And it lay on my fevered spirit With a touch of infinite calm. It quieted pain and sorrow, Like love overcoming strife; It seemed the harmonious echo From our discordant life. It linked all perplexed meanings Into one perfect peace, And trembled away into silence As if it were loth to cease.
