“ On all thy trees, on every bough,
Thousands of crystals sparkle now,

Where'er our eyes alight;
Firm on the spotless robe we tread,
Which o'er thy beauteous form is spread,

With glittering hoar-frost bright.

“Our Father kind, who dwells above,
For thee this garment pure hath wove,

He watches over thee;
Therefore in peace thy slumber take,
Our Father will the weary wake,

New strength, new light to see."
