No sad thought his soul affright
No sad thought his soul affright,
Sleep it is that maketh night;
Let no murmur nor rude wind
To his slumbers prove unkind:
But a quire of angels make
His dreams of heaven, and let him wake
To as many joys as can
In this world befall a man.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary

the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
