SONG

OVER THE CRADLE OF TWO INFANT SISTERS, 8LEEPING.




Sweet be their rest! no ghastly things
To scare their dreams, assemble here;
But safe beneath good angels' wings
May each repose from year to year.

Cheerful, like some long summer-day,
May all their waking moments flow,
Happier, as run life's sands away,
Unstained by sin, untouched by woe.
