Straight through my heart this f?ot to-day. : By Troth'e own hand is driveni-' - 7' God never takes one thing asway But something else is given., I did not know in earlier years This law'of love and kindneess, But without hope, through bitter teares I mourned in sorrow's blindneSr. And, ever following each regret For some departed tressrne, My sad, repining heart was met With unexpected pleasure. I thought it only happened so; . But time this truth huise saegntmis- No least thing from my life dsn go, But something else Is brought me. It is the law, complete, sublime. And now, with faith unshaken, . In patience I but bide my time, When any joy is taken. No matter itf the orushing blow May for the moment down met; Still back of it waits Love, I kndr, ..
