204                      FOREST MELODIES.
There is One can ease thy sighing, One can hush thy soul to rest:
He can love with love undying— Julia, fly to Jesus' breast!
TO MY HUSBAND. Husband, shrink not in the contest
With the powers of hell and night; Let thy heart be still undaunted,
Mid the fiercest of the fight.
Oft I see a gloomy shadow Stealing o'er thy brow awhile;
Though thou strivest to be cheerful, There is sadness in thy smile.
Ah ! I know thy heart is weary Of the roughness of thy way;
But amid the darkness dreary, I have seen a gleam of day.
Yes, I see a crown suspended, In its brightness o'er thy brow;
And its radiance is blended,
With those mournful shadows now.
The Redeemer means to try thee, Means to prove thy faithfulness;
Yet, the while, he lingers nigh thee, And he lingers nigh to bless.
