154                      FABER'S HYMNS.
A bright horizon out at sea Obscures the distant ships ;
Rough hearts look smooth and beautiful In charity's eclipse.
Love's changeful mood our neighbor's faults
(Verwhelms with burning ray, And in excess of splendor hides
What is not burned away.
Again, with truth like God's, it shades Harsh things with untrue light,
Like moons that make a fairyland Of fallow fields at night.
Then mercy, Lord ! more mercy still!
Make me all light within, Self-hating and compassionate,
And blind to others' sin.
