Though darkness reigns. He's with you still;
Then sleep, my babes, and fear no ill.

Hast thou a star to guide thy path,
Or mark the rolling year?

Delightful visitant; with thee
I hail the time of flowers,
And hear the sound of music sweet
From birds among tiie bowers.

To pluck the primrose gay, ^
Starts, the new voice of spring]tq
And imitates thy lay. (hear^
