Her home is by thiriver, •
Where the gently Bowing stream -
Glides on with happy murmurs,
• Like mirsie in a dream;
Where the day is clad with roses,
Where the night is filled with song,
Where memories are perfumed
With breath from an Angel throng. '
There love clothes the hours with rapture,
There hearts meet in blissful embrace,.
There eyes melt in eyes with devotion;
And hands with love's fondness embrace;
Thtre truth iv enshrined in its brightness,
There confidence folds its pure wings,
Thete words are translated by glances,
And lark-like Abe happy heart *lnge. ,
There the lone heart reposes in safety,
There hope springlafresh from the put,
There years drop their garments of darkness,
And life with new dreaiiiiivoverust; •
There home is invested with magic,
There words have ao Eden-like sound:
There moments are Margined with fonOness.
And peace, rest and gladness abound.
By that raver my heart has encamped,
To taste the calm joys of repose..
To drink of the waters of peace
As life swiftly draws to its - done:
Love 'Waters ifs message of gladness,
Hope points to the clear beaming light
That over that Home by the River
Is pouring itsradiance so bright.
