Strana 21 - One by one thy griefs shall meet thee, Do not fear an armed band : One will fade as others greet thee ; Shadows passing through the land. Do not look at life's long sorrow ; See how small each moment's pain ; God will help thee for to-morrow, So each day begin again. Every hour that fleets so slowly Has its task to do or bear ; Luminous the crown, and holy, If thou set each gem with care.
Strana 18 - The fall thou darest to despise, — May be the angel's slackened hand Has suffered it, that he may rise And take a firmer, surer stand ; Or, trusting less to earthly things, May henceforth learn to use his wings.

" The night is growing darker, " Ere one more day is flown, " Bregenz, our foemen's stronghold
Strana 208 - I thank Thee more, that all our joy Is touched with pain; That shadows fall on brightest hours; That thorns remain; So that earth's bliss may be our guide, And not our chain.
Strana 208 - I thank thee, Lord, that Thou hast kept The best in store ; We have enough, yet not too much To long for more : A yearning for a deeper peace, Not known before. r I thank Thee, Lord, that here our souls, Though amply blest, Can never find, although they seek, A perfect rest, — Nor ever shall, until they lean On Jesus
Strana 36 - ... hand Could better wake or still ? Speak now — lest at some future day my whole life wither and decay. Lives there within thy nature hid The demon-spirit Change, Shedding a passing glory still On all things new and strange ? It may not be thy fault alone — but shield my heart against thy own.
Strana 102 - Yet pray, and with hopeful tears ; An answer, not that you long for, But diviner will come one day ; Your eyes are too dim to see it, Yet strive, and wait, and pray.
