shadow of celestial love!Traind to look up and hold a parents handAnd ever lift the eye to one above- -Which knows not yet, while it obeys command- -Hopes all, and all believes. Elysian land!Drinking the air of immortalityIt sheds oer earth a gleam of paradise.It is a precious sight, which angels viewIn trembling joy and hope- immortal loveHangs oer it, watching every opening hue.Since many such on this bad earth may proveMeet for Gods golden house in highest heaven aboveAbout the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
