While Cynthia sheds her borrow'd light

While Cynthia sheds her borrow'd light

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

While Cynthia sheds her borrow'd light,
And stars illume the sky,
Alone I'll trace the distant plain,
Unseen by mortal eye,
Far from the noise of jarring strive
Sweet peace my soul enjoys,
Serene and calm the evening scene,
My busy thoughts employ.
