Page 29 - SLEEP. Sleep, thou patron of mankind, Great physician of the mind, Who dost nor pain nor sorrow know, Sweetest balm of every woe, Mildest sovereign, hear us now ; Hear thy wretched suppliant's vow ; His eyes in gentle slumbers close, And continue his repose ; Hear thy wretched suppliant's vow, Great physician, hear us now.
Page 5 - To damp its fire ; her prudence and her pride Have saved her oft; and when deluding love, With wily softness, steals into her heart, She calls the ruling passion to her aid, And bids ambition check the bold intruder.
