THE SHEPHERD'S SONG ON THE LORD'S DAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The lord's own day is here
Last Line: The lord's own day is here!


THE Lord's own day is here!
Alone I kneel on this broad plain;
A matin bell just sounds; again
'Tis silence, far and near.

Here kneel I on the sod;
O deep amazement, strangely felt!
As though, unseen, vast numbers knelt
And prayed with me to God!

Yon heav'n afar and near—
So bright, so glorious seems its cope
As though e'en now its gates would ope—
The Lord's own day is here!
