Who heeda the soul's unuttered sigh, When sinking 'neath a load of sin. And whispers comfort from on high. Throws wide the gates and lets it in? Those moments in the stilly night, When all the world ia wrapped in Bleep. And darkness palls and there's no eight, Ah, who then o'er us vigils keep? Aye, when that thunder bolt came down. And others at thy side were slain. And thou did'st sse thy best friend down, While thou through some hid cause remain: Thy child was dead, so thou didlt think, Because tbe danger was so near, Tet by some means, aome hidden link, Ide lives again to g ve thee cheer 1 Why long'stthy s...
