Rest In Heaven
|When tossed on time's tempestuous tide,
By angry storms resistless driven,
One hope can bid our fears subside--
It is the hope of rest in Heaven.
With trusting heart we lift our eyes
Above the dark clouds, tempest-driven,
And view, beyond those troubled skies,
The peaceful, stormless rest of Heaven.
No more to shed the exile's tears,--
No more the heart by anguish riven,--
No longer bent 'neath toilful years,--
How sweet will be the rest of Heaven
- Mrs. J. C. Yule
