408. S. M. Steele. Religion a Support in Life.
1 Religion can assuage
The tempest of the soul;
And every fear shall lose its rage
At her divine control.
2 Through life's bewildered way,
Her hand unerring leads;
And o'er the path her heavenly ray
A cheering lustre sheds.
3 When reason, tired and blind,
Sinks helpless and afraid,
Thou blest supporter of the mind,
How powerful is thine aid!
4 O, let us feel thy power,
And find thy sweet relief,
To brighten every gloomy hour
And soften every grief.
