Emily Huntington Miller Poems
Hang Up The Baby's Stocking
Hang up the baby's stocking Be sure you don't forget! The dear little dimpled darling, She never saw Christmas yet!
The Bluebird song
I know the song that the bluebird is singing, Out in the apple-tree where he is swinging; Brave little fellow, the skies may look dreary;
New Year Song
They say that the year is old and gray, That his eyes are dim with sorrow; But what care we, though he pass away?
Oh Realm of Light!
Oh realm of light! whose morning star To Bethlehem's manger led the way, Not yet upon our longing eyes
I Love To Hear The Story
I I love to hear the story Which angel voices tell, How once the King of glory
Tell The Blessed Tidings
Tell the blessèd tidings, children of the King, With your glad hosannas make the morning ring: Songs of His salvation, nevermore should cease;
The Wood-Dove's Note
Meadows with yellow cowslips all aglow, Glory of sunshine on the uplands bare, And faint and far, with sweet elusive flow,
Oh Realm of Light!
Oh realm of light! whose morning star
To Bethlehem's manger led the way,
Not yet upon our longing eyes
Shines the full splendor of thy day:
Yet still across the centuries fall,
Both strong and sweet, our Lord's command;
And still with steadfast faith we cry,
"Behold, the kingdom is at hand!"
