"When sorrow sets around thy -wayward pnth . And many troubles follow in her train ; When dire mischance it seems will never wane, And life for thee no sort of pleasure hath; When friendship proves aa frail as any lath, Snaps in a trice and leaves the dull, slow pain The aching heart that ne'er may hope again -And drear despair seems life's sole aftermath, There is an outlet from thy dreary creed ; There is a pasture on which thou may'st feed ; 'There is n never-failing friend at hand.
