The brave heart said : "Twill be gone tomorrow;'
Ah, little it knew!
For it steadily grew,
Till it covered that heart with a pall of sorrow ;
And there came at length, a darksome day,
When the hope of life seemed gone for aye.
A ray of light, in a darkened heart ;
Yes, only a ray, but it grew more bright.
And it steadily spread,
Through darkness and dread.
Till it flooded that heart with a glorious light;
And a soul gave thanks to its God, above;
The light was a Savior's guiding love.
