Born upon an Angels Breast

I crime and emnity they lie
Who sin and tell us love can die
Who say to us in slanders breath
That love belongs to sin and death
From Heaven it came on Angels wing
To bloom on earth eternal spring
In falsehoods enmity they lie
Who sin and tell us love can die.

Twas born upon an angels breast
The softest dreams the sweetest rest
The brightest sun the bluest sky
Are loves own home and canopy
The thought that cheers this heart of mine
Is that of Love — Love so divine
They sin who say in slanders breath
That love belongs to Sin and death.

The sweetest voice that lips contain
The sweetest thought that leaves the brain
The sweetest feelings of the heart
Theres pleasure even in its smart
The scent of Rose and Cinnamon
Is hot like Love remem[b]ered on
In falsehoods enmity they lie
Who sin and tell us love can die.
