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.
