ENGLISH POETRY.

Senior Iltbiaiow.

"OUR FATHER."

The Sabbath sun was setting slow,

Amidst the clouds of even;
"Our Father," breathed a voice below—

"Father, who art in Heaven \"

Beyond the earth, beyond the cloud,
Those infant words were given;
'"Our Father," angels sang aloud—
"Father, who art in Heaven!"

"Thy kingdom come," still from the ground

That childlike voice did pray; "Thy kingdom come," God's hosts resound,

Far up the starry way!

"Thy will be done," with little tongue

That lisping love implores;
"Thy will be done," the angelic throng

Sing from seraphic shores!
