The cross of Christ is ay before his eyes.
son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?

In sunny showers, that scarcely fill the folds
Sweet is the sunny nook, to which my steps Have brought me, hardly conscious where I
roam’d, Unheeding where,—so lovely, all around, The works of God, array'd in vernal smile!
Oft at this season musing I prolong My devious range, till, sunk from view, the sun Emblaze, with upward-slanting ray, the breast And wing unquiring of the wheeling lark,
Descending vocal from her latest flight,
SUMMER SABBATH WALK.

Save when the wren fits from her down-cov'd
And from the root-sprigs trills her ditty clear,
Watches his time to spring; or from above,
