BY T. H. CoUIVRS, U. D.
Sweet Nightinuale of heaven! thou art the bird.
That in the groves or salure poured her sog
And is the deep silence of my bosom stirred,
Like the soil winds the gentle lake along!
And oh! the sweetness of thy gentle tongue
Is maily chained upon my spirit now,
Like the bright diadeni of glory hung
Around tite radiance of an age's brow.
When firoan the isles of heaventy love she brings,
The healings of the -pirit on her wings.
Ard now thy music thrills me, as if all
The liquid gtshings of thy voice could roll.
Anid mingle wi.h my spirit, like thi fall
U mighty wa ors circling round the soil!
And like the swnetness of the ocean shell
'Tihat in the azure of*the waves doth dip,
Thy tender voice upon my sos doth swell.
Like wa&es droppog from an Angel's lip;
And like the hillows of thse aszeire lake,
Circling tls beauty ol'the milky swan,
Cirit d by her bosom on the shore to break
Iin liluidt kisses, a. se csrclo.- on.
So. firmis thy spirit waves the liquid song,
That spreads triumphantly my bosom o'er,
And brings smse healing as it floats along,
Like blessings rrom eternity's bright shorel
