Páll Jónsson D


On the wings of light declining

Sinks the westering sun to sleep:

Lord, alike in dark or shining,

Thy pure eyes their vigil keep.

Let Thy light, which faileth never,

Round me shine, though day depart;

And, though night prevaileth, ever

Flood the chambers of my heart.

[5]After the Icelandic of Páll Jónsson, A.D. 1889.
