Cornwall, B. (n.d.). A Prayer in Sickness. Retrieved from


Excerpt: SEND down Thy winged angel, God! // Amid this night so wild; // And bid him come where now we watch, // And breathe upon our child! // She lies upon her pillow, pale, // And moans within her sleep, // Or wakeneth with a patient smile, // And striveth not to weep. // How gentle and how good a child // She is, we know too well, // And dearer to her parents' hearts // Than our weak words can tell. // We love - we watch throughout the night, // To aid, when need may be; // We hope - and have despaired, at times; // But now we turn to Thee! // Send down Thy sweet-souled angel, God! // Amid the darkness wild; // And bid him soothe our souls to-night, // And heal our gentle child!
