Kind 7 | nature | 7 the | embryo | blossom will |

| cried, 71 Thy 7| creature, I 7 who | fain would not wander

from thee; 71 Lo! 7 | humble in dust, 717 I re | linquish my i

pride: 71 7 From | doubt and from | darkness, I thou 7 | only

canst | free 7 1 1 7 And | darkness and doubt 7 17 are now | flying

1 a | way, 71 No7 | longer I | roam in de 1 jection for lorn, 7|| to 7 | breaks on the traveller, | | faint and a
