by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849)

At morn ‑‑ at noon ‑‑ at twilight dim
Language: English 
At morn -- at noon -- at twilight dim --
Maria! thou hast heard my hymn!
In joy and woe- in good and ill --
Mother of God, be with me still!
When the hours flew brightly by,
And not a cloud obscured the sky,
My soul, lest it should truant be,
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee;
Now, when storms of Fate o'ercast
Darkly my Present and my Past,
Let my Future radiant shine
With sweet hopes of thee and thine!
