Merry the mlrthful day wlll be- Glad as the wild blrd's song of lee; But joys that corae, rejoys thiil flee- The IiuikIiIiii; hrooklet seeks the sea It may nol blde. "Home for the holldnys!' O, my soul, The words potnt ou ton searer Koal, Wheu the Kchool day's done, the earlh llfe pust, We shalj flnd our Falhor's home Ht last, Some Chrislmas-tlde. TUI then, work on, God '4 time 11 best, The Bterner toll, the sweeter rest . That i'li rist mus-t lc wlll Nureljr come. And theehlldren then wlll all go home And weslmll blde.
