And there is even a happiness That makes the heart afraid.
Peace and rest at length have come
All the day's long toil is past,
And each heart is whispering, "Home,
Home at last."
But evil is wrought by want of thought,
As well as want of heart.
How bless'd the heart that has a friend. A sympathizing ear to lend.
My head was like an ardent coal,
My heart as solid ice;
My wretched, wretched soul, I knew,
Was at the Devil's price:
A dozen times I groaned: the dead
Had never groaned but twice!
Each cloud-capt mountain is a holy altar;
An organ breathes in every grove;
And the full heart 's a Psalter,
Rich in deep hymn of gratitude and love.
Quote of the day
