1"Tis folly all" let me no more be toldText
2Ye linnets, let us try, beneath this groveText
3I am fond of the swallow - I learn from her flightText
4Ah! reign, wherever man is found!Text
5'Twas my purpose, on a dayText
6There's not an echo round meText
7My Spouse! in whose presence I liveText
8All are indebted much to theeText
9My heart is easy, and my burden lightText
10The fountain in its sourceText
11O love, of pure and heavenly birth!Text
12Thou hast no lightnings, O thou Just!Text
13O thou, by long experience triedText
14How happy are the new-born raceText
15Love is the Lord whom I obeyText
16Source of love, and light of dayText
17Love! if thy destined sacrifice am IText
18Blest! who, far from all mankindText
19Oh loved! but not enough—though dearer farText
20From thorny wilds a monster cameText
21Since life in sorrow must be spentText
22In vain ye woo me to your harmless joysText
23Jealous, and with love o'erflowingText
24Peace has unveiled her smiling faceText
25I place an offering at thy shrineText
26To lay the soul that loves him lowText
27Sun! stay thy course, this moment stayText
28I suffer fruitless anguish day by dayText
29Sleep at last has fled these eyesText
30Season of my purest pleasureText
31Night! how I love thy silent shadesText
32Long plunged in sorrow, I resignText
33Sweet tenants of this grove!Text
34Still, still, without ceasingText
35Source of love, my brighter sunText
36"I love the Lord" is still the strainText
37Wilds horrid and dark with o'er shadowing treesText
