I may not see their features,
Save in memory’s faithful glass,
But 1 leel that they are with roe,
Each moment that doth pass.
I feel them in the promptings
Of good, which thrill my heart;
I hear them in the voices
Which pleasure must impart
When the sun beams bright around me,
And my soul is full of joys,
I then discern the presence
Of my two Angel boys.
They whisper solace to me,
When sorrow's cloud is dark;
They tan Hopes failing embera
When dwindled to a spark.
Their voice is sweetest music,
But it greeteth not the ear,
The heart alone receives it—
The heart alone can hear.
As I lay me down to slumber,
Peace in my breast doth reign,
For 1 know my Angel watchers
Amid the gloom remain.
Spirit eyes gaze on me,
Eyes that know not night;
Spirit hands unite to bless ms,
Hidden from my sight.
Hidden, but 0, happiness!
Faith assurance brings!
Living, loving, still they’re round me,
Borne on willing wings.
