I LOVE to see the glorious sun

First tinge the east with purple dye,

And then with glowing splendor run

Along the lofty azure sky.

I love to see the orb of night

Glide o'er her glittering starry way,

And with her brilliant silver light

Upon the water's surface play.

But lovlier far than these appear

Religion's calm and flowery ways:

They soothe vain sorrow, dry the tear,

And end with joy our earthly days.
