Hymn, on the Miraculous Recovery of a Dear Patient

ON THE MIRACULOUS RECOVERY OF A DEAR PARENT ,

O H , thou whose gale of chilling breath
Can freeze the veins benumb'd in death!
And thou whose mercy can reveal
The power to save — the balms that heal!
Accept on thy celestial throne
The hearts that flew to thee alone,
When ghastly terror glar'd around,
And smote the desolated ground,
Presenting, as in storms, thy face
To a devoted helpless race.
Accept the joy that words degrade,
In wonder lost, and breathless made!
Be thy uplifted arm ador'd
For a dear Parent's life restor'd:
A life that, emulating, strove,
To follow the Redeemer's love:
On the calm evening of her day
Let smiling Health resume her sway!
