Seite 25 - Seated one day at the organ. I was weary and ill at ease. And my fingers wandered idly Over the noisy keys. I know not what I was playing. Or what I was dreaming then : But I struck one chord of music Like the sound of a great Amen.
Seite 26 - 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.

Yet, on each feast of Mary Their sorrow finds release, For the Great Archangel Michael Comes down and bids it cease ; And the name of these brief respites Is called
Seite 30 - OUD roared the Tempest, Fast fell the sleet ; A little Child Angel Passed down the street, With trailing pinions, And weary feet. The moon was hidden ; No stars were bright ; So she could not shelter In heaven that night, For the Angels
Seite 201 - Slowly the rays of daylight fade ; So fade within our heart The hopes in earthly love and joy, That one by one depart : Slowly the bright stars, one by one, Within the heavens shine, — Give us, O Lord, fresh hopes in heaven, And trust in things Divine.
