THE WORK OF GRACE.                131
Sweetly stealing, sweetly stealing, See how grace its way is feeling.
See the tears, the blessed trouble,
Doubts and fears, and hopes and smiles! How the guilt of sin seems double, And how plain are Satan's wiles! Sweetly stealing, sweetly stealing, See how grace its way is feeling!
Now the light is growing brighter,
Fear of hell, and hate of sin;
Another flash! the heart is lighter;
Love of God hath entered in.
Sweetly stealing, sweetly stealing, See how grace its way is feeling.
Now upon the favorite passion Falls a steady ray of grace ; And the lights of world and fashion In the new light fade apace.
Sweetly stealing, sweetly stealing, See how grace its way is feeling.
What was sweet hath now grown bitter,
What was bitter passing sweet; Even penance now seems fitter Than the poor world's idle treat. Sweetly stealing, sweetly stealing, See how grace its way is feeling!
