Edmund Sears
For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophet-bards foretold,
When with the ever-circling years,
Comes round the age of gold;
When Peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.
Sears quotes
Death is a stage in human progress, to be passed as we would pass from childhood to youth, or from youth to manhood, and with the same consciousness of an everlasting nature.
Calm on the listening ear of night
Come Heavenís melodious strains,
Where wild Judea stretches far
Her silver-mantled plains.

Sears Edmund quotes
It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From Angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold;
"Peace on the earth, good will to man
From Heavenís all gracious King."
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.
