CALM ON THE LISTENING EAE OF NIGHT. Edmund Seaes.
Calm on the listening ear of night Came heaven's melodious strains,
The joyous hills of Palestine
Send back the glad reply, And greet, from all their holy heights,
The Day-spring from on high.
O'er the blue depths of Galilee There comes a holier calm;
Where wild Judea stretches far Her silver-mantled plains.
Celestial choirs from courts above
Shed sacred glories there; And angels, with their sparkling lyres,
Make music on the air.
And Sharon waves, in solemn praise, Her silent groves of palm.
" Glory to God !" the sounding skies Loud with their anthems ring;
" Peace on the earth, good-will to men, From heaven's eternal King!"
