  Yes, The Weary Earth Shall Brighten  

 

Yes, the weary earth shall brighten--
    Brighten in the perfect day,
And the fields that now but whiten,
    Golden glow beneath the ray!
Slowly swelling in her bosom,
    Long the precious seed has lain,--
Soon shall come the perfect blossom,
    Soon, the rich, abundant grain!

Long has been the night of weeping,
    But the morning dawns at length,
And, the misty heights o'ersweeping,
    Lo, the sun comes forth in strength!
Down the slopes of ancient mountains,
    Over plain, and vale, and stream,
Flood, and field, and sparkling fountains,
    Speeds the warm rejoicing beam!

Think not God can fail His promise!
    Think not Christ can be denied!
He shall see His spirit's travail--
    He shall yet be satisfied!
Soon the "Harvest home" of angels
    Shall resound from shore to shore,
And amid Earth's glad evangels,
    Christ shall reign for evermore!

       - Mrs. J. C. Yule
