Hope in misery



Bachelor's Button 
~ S.C. Edgarton ~


The cloud may be dark, but there is sunshine beyond it;
The night may be o’er us, but morning is near;
The vale may be deep, but there’s music around it;
And hope, mid our anguish, bright hope is still here.

Still here, though the wing of dark sorrow is o’er us,
Tho’ bitterness dregs every cup that we drink;
With a smile in her eyes, she glides before us
To yield us support when we falter or sink.

Blessed hope! like a star on the darkness of ocean,
Still gleam o’er the track where our destinies tend;
And guide our frail hearts from this sea of emotion,
To havens of peace where our sorrows will end.
