Faith, Hope, and Love.
417

Supreme disposer of the heart!

Thou, since the world was made,

Hast the blest fruits of holiness

To holy hearts displayed.

Here, hope and faith their links unite

With love in one sweet chain;

But when all fleeting things are past,

Love shall alone remain.

O love! O true and fadeless light!

And shall it ever be,

That after all our toils and tears

Thy sabbath we shall see?

’Mid thousand fears and dangers now

We sow our seed, with prayer,

But know that joyful hands shall reap

The shining harvests there.

O God of justice, God of power!

Our faith and hope increase,

And crown them, in the future years,

With endless love and peace.
