THE UNBELIEVING WORLD. 175
Ah, Lord! they must learn that their light is but darkness; They must come to believe that our darkness is light; They, who think they see far, must acknowledge their blindness, And come to Thy Church to recover their sight.
But we who have light, we must make our light brighter, And thus show our love to Thee, Lord ! for Thy
gift; The faith Thou has sent us our love can make greater, And almost to sight our believing can lift.
Faith is sweetest of worships to Him who so loves His unbearable splendors in darkness to hide ;
And to trust to Thy word, dearest Lord ! is true love, For those prayers are most granted which seem most denied.
Oh why hast Thou made then faith's field all so narrow, Nor multiplied objects for childlike belief; For faith, though it is such a beautiful worship,
Is but earth's span of Heaven, too fleeting and brief.
