Though clouds may dim thy pathway, the sun will shine again;
And dawn will surely follow, though gloomy night may reign;
So love may seem to wither, yet shine with blissful ray;
The darkest hour forever is still before the day;
Be faithlul, yet be trusting; the stars that o'er thee beam,
With steadfast light are burning, tho' dim their rays may seem.

Oh! cease thy repining, and calm thy way pursue;
The star of hope is shining, then gentle heart be true.

The storm may rend the blossoms from off their parent tree,
But other Springs will greet us with bloom and melody.
And birds will sing as sweetly, though now they must depart;
And joy's enchanting visions will linger round the heart,
When from thy life the Summer Is fading In the blast;
Be sure he Spring is near thee, thy Winter almost past.
Oh ! cease thy sad repining, and calm thy, &c.

Oh! trusting still, ne'er falter-thy faith will conquer all;
For stor us as well as sunshine to every life must fall.
'Tis but thy gift of sorrow that makes thy life complete;
The gloomy clouds and tempest make sunshine still more sweet;
With trv stful eyes look upward, with true and loving zest.
Be true, oh: fond and dear one, and leave to heaven the rest.
Oh! cease thy sad repining, and calm thy, &c.
