FOR THE BALANCE.

ORIGINAL LINES:

RITTEN DURING SEVERE ILLNESS.

Let Heavenly patience smooth my brow,

And calm the tempest of my soul, Let faith and hope increase and grow,

While all thy billows o'er me roll.

Let meek submission reign within,

And every murmuring thought subdue : Let love to God, and love to men

Prove that my heart is form'd anew.

Dispel my darkness, doubts and fears,

Nor let my spirit be dismay'd:
Let me those Heavenly accents hear,

“ I am thy God, be not afraid !"

Shine on my soul, reveal thy love,

Put joy and gladness in my hearts 'Let me one shining moment prove,

Just when my soul and body part.
