Thou earnest them away as with a flood : they are as a sleep : in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

13 페이지 - We'll own the favoring gale. 2 But should the surges rise, And rest delay to come, Blest be the sorrow, kind the storm, Which drives us nearer home. 3 Soon shall our doubts and fears All yield to Thy control: Thy tender mercies shall illume The midnight of the soul. 4 Teach us, in every state, To make Thy will our own; And when the joys of sense depart, To live by faith alone.
