“Let me take heart! the present scene shall soon be o’er;
The clustering clouds shall hide the sun at noon no more.
The tears now dropping from my eyes shall be forgot;
The joys undimmed by sin and misery, my lot.
The storm now sweeping through the troubled sky be past;
The longed-for morning without clouds arise at last.
The hindmost shadow soon shall utterly depart;
Then let me watch and wait, and hopefully take heart.”
—H. Grattan Guinness.
