::R4834 : page 173::


“Thou hast been faithful—
Thou hast borne the cross,
The thorns have pierced thy feet;
But now the night is past—
The day has come—bright,
Glorious Day of endless joy and love.
The trial time hath proved thee true
And thou art safe, Beloved,
In thy Father’s home.

“O, glorious Day, for thee we long!
We will be faithful, will the
Burdens bear, sustained by grace Divine.
In meek submission to thy holy will;
Dear Lord, by faith we clasp thy hand
As side by side we tread the Narrow Way,
And wait—for it will surely come—
Some day, some dear, sweet day;
O, tarry not too long!”
