COME to me, joys of heaven!
Breathe through the summer air
A balm—the long-lost leaven
Dissolving death, despair!
  O little heart,
  To me thou art
A sign that never can depart.

Come to me, peace on earth!
From out life's billowy sea,—
A wave of welcome birth,—
The Life that lives in Thee!
  O Love divine,
  This heart of Thine
Is all I need to comfort mine.

Come when the shadows fall,
And night grows deeply dark;
The barren brood, call
With song of morning lark;
  And from above,
  Dear heart of Love,
Send us thy white-winged dove.

Pleasant View, Concord, N. H., 1899.
