2 Unto Thy children's spirits teach
Thy love, beyond the powers of speech; And make them know, with joyful awe, The encircling presence of Thy law.
Nor suffers one true word or thought! Or deed of love, to come to nought. I
4 Such faith, O God! our spirits fill, That we may work in patience still: I Who works for justice, works for Theel Who works in love, Thy child shall be.
Rev. Samuel LongfelloJ
3 Its patient working doth fulfil
Man's hope, and God's all-perfect will,
2  Help me the slow of heart to move By some clear winning word of love; Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
And guide them in the homeward way. 2
3  Teach me Thy patience! still with Thee In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong, In trust that triumphs over wrong, j
In hope that sends a shining ray Far down the future's broadening way; In peace that only Thou canst give, With Thee, O Master, let me live! \
Rev. Washington Gladden, 1879
