Song: ‘Belovèd, it is morn!’
By Emily Henrietta Hickey (1845–1924)
 
BELOVÈD, it is morn!
  A redder berry on the thorn,
  A deeper yellow on the corn,
For this good day new-born:
    Pray, Sweet, for me        5
    That I may be
    Faithful to God and thee.
 
Belovèd, it is day!
  And lovers work, as children play,
  With heart and brain untired alway:        10
Dear love, look up and pray.
    Pray, Sweet, for me
    That I may be
    Faithful to God and thee.
 
Belovèd, it is night!        15
  Thy heart and mine are full of light,
  Thy spirit shineth clear and white,—
God keep thee in his sight!
    Pray, Sweet, for me
    That I may be        20
    Faithful to God and thee.
