“OUR FATHER."

The Sabbath sun was setting slow,

Amidst the clouds of even;
Our Father,” breathed a voice below
“Father, who art in Heaven!"

Beyond the earth, beyond the cloud,

Those infant words were given;
"Our Father," angels sang aloud -

Father, who art in Heaven !"

“Thy kingdom come,” still from the ground

That childlike voice did pray; “Thy kingdom come,” God's hosts resound,

Far up the starry way!

" Thy will be done,” with little tongue

That lisping love implores;
“Thy will be done,” the angelic throng

Sing from seraphic shores !
