AS I WATCH THE LIGHT.
AS I WATCH THE LIGHT. , ' As I watch the mellow light
Of the slow-declining sun, Mem'ries of the past, to-night, -
Steal upon me one by one.
Here I've watch'd the clouds of gold, Floating through the azure heaven;
Seen their gaudy wings unfold, In the dusky light of even.
Here I 've gazed upon the stars, Glitt'ring in the dome of night;
And the moon, which always wears Such a robe of silvery white.
Here my eye has caught the charm Of the music-breathing spring,
When my heart and hopes were warm, And I loved the tuneful string.
Here with restless heart I sought And obtain'd the pearl divine ;
Here my soul its glory caught, From religion's hallow'd shrine.
Here have trials closed me round, Darker than the shades of even;
Here my weary heart has found Solace sweet, and aid from heaven.
