Signs of the Heart
Come to me, joys of heaven! Breathe through the summer air A balm the long-lost leaven Dissolving death, despair! O little heart, To me thou art A sign that never can depart. Come to me, peace on earth!
From out life’s billowy sea, A wave of welcome birth, The Life that lives in Thee! O Love divine, This heart of Thine Is all I need to comfort mine. Come when the shadows fall, And night grows deeply dark;
The barren brood, O call With song of morning lark; And from above, Dear heart of Love, Send us thy white-winged dove.
