FABER'S HYMNS.
LIGHT IN DARKNESS.
Once in the simple thought of God
My old repose I sought, But lo ! the well-known peace was now
No longer in that thought.
My spirit fluttered here and there,
Beset with nameless fears; My eyes with very dryness burned,
While my heart shed inward tears.
I was as one who cannot sleep
Upon a bed of pain, Too restless to be still and bear,
Too peevish to complain.
Then suddenly a silent gloom Like a web was round me spun,
As grateful as a sudden shade After a scorching sun.
The darkness grew, and, as it grew More dark, it grew more still;
And something dawned, less in my min Than deep within my will.
