Filial "Etrennes" — New-Year's Offering

Y E Guardian Angels, who discover
How dearly all her children love her,
Oh, listen to the filial prayer,
And shield her with a mother's care!
To charm as long as health endures,
The power is her's, the gift is yours:
Grant, for 'tis all that we implore,
Her life — till she is lov'd no more .
