Mary Artemisia Lathbury
“Day is dying in the West; / Heav'n is touching the earth with rest ...”
“O mother, mother, hear the sea! / it calls across the sands; / I saw it tossing up the spray, like white, / imploring hands ...”
“Come, O Creator, Spirit blest! / And in our souls take up Thy rest; / Come, with Thy grace and heavenly aid, / To fill the hearts which Thou has made.”
Mary Artemisia Lathbury, U.S. writer, hymnist
(1841 - 1913)
Familiarly known as Aunt May or the Chautauqua Laureate.
