My Wish for Thee
BY DAVID FLETCHER HUNTON.
May Godís richest blessing rest upon thee.
Wherever thy footsteps may roam;
May all the gates of true happiness be
Wide open for thee in thy home.
May no strife disturb or darken thy day,
No sorrow distress thee at night;
May Loveís sweetest flowers oíer bloom in thy way,
And perfume thy life with delight.
May angel hands strengthen when thou art weak,
And keep thee from envious foes;
May the pillow of peace kiss thy dear cheek,
When slumber thy eyelids shall close.
At last, when the years have so multiplied,
That life seems a burden at best,
Oh! may Godís angels draw near to thy side,
And usher thee into thy rest.
Into the splendors of Eden above,
The beautiful temples of God;
Into the balm breathing gardens of love,
To meet thy dear friends from the sod.
