2. Humbly kneeling, sweet appealing— Twas the boys first uttered prayer— When the powrs of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair; But undaunted, still he trusted In his Heavnly Fathers care; But undaunted, still he trusted In his Heavnly Fathers care.

3. Suddenly a light descended, Brighter far than noonday sun, And a shining, glorious pillar Oer him fell, around him shone, While appeared two heavnly beings, God the Father and the Son, While appeared two heavnly beings, God the Father and the Son.

4. Joseph, this is my Beloved; Hear him! Oh, how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered, And he listened to the Lord. Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God; Oh, what rapture filled his bosom, For he saw the living God.
