60 SONGS FROM THE ST. LAWRENCE.
Ye gentle ones, farewell!
Now we must part; Affection's fountains swell
Deep in my heart.
Your study hours have sped— Sweetly they pass'd;
Each hour of prayer has fled— This is the last.
Come, gather round me now, Sing the last hymn,
And reverently bow The knee to Him,
'Neath whose protecting care We live and move ;
And seek, in earnest prayer, His constant love.
I ask not, as we part, One thought for me,—
Though cherish'd in my heart Your forms shall be:
But when, in after life,
Your weary lot Is mark'd with care and strife.
And I 'm forgot;
