TRIAL AND TEMPTATION
430
2 Keen was the trial once,                              4 Lord, may that grace be ours,
The bitter cup of woe,                                       Like them in faith to bear
When martyred saints, baptized in blood,        All that of sorrow, grief, or pain
Christ's sufferings shared below.                      May be our portion here.
3 Bright is their glory now, Boundless their joy above, Where, on the bosom of their God, They rest in perfect love.
5 Enough, if Thou at last The word of blessing give, And let us rest beneath Thy feet, Where saints and angels live.
Henry W. Baker, 1852
431
2  Though long the weary way we tread,      The murmuring wind, the quivering leaf, And sorrow crown each lingering year; Shall softly tell us, Thou art near!
No path we shun, no darkness dread,
Our hearts still whispering, Thou art near.    4 On Thee we fling our burdening woe,
O Love divine, forever dear;
3  When drooping pleasure turns to grief,    Content to suffer, while we know, And trembling faith is changed to fear; Living and dying, Thou art near!
Olivhr Wendell Holmes, 18591
