358. P. M. Anonymous. Ministering Angels.

1 Brother, the angels say,
Peace to thy heart!
We, too, O brother, have
Been as thou art, --
Hope-lifted, doubt-depressed,
Seeing in part,
Tried, troubled, tempted,
Sustained, as thou art.

2 Brother, they softly say,
Be our thoughts one;
Bend thou with us and pray,
|Thy will be done!|
Our God is thy God;
He willeth the best;
Trust Him as we trusted --
Rest as we rest!

3 Ye, too, they gently say,
Shall angels be;
Ye, too, O brothers,
From earth shall be free:
Yet in earth's loved ones
Ye still shall have part,
Bearing God's strength and love
To the torn heart.

4 Thus when the spirit, tried
Tempted and worn,
Finding no earthly aid,
Heavenward doth turn, --
Come these sweet angel-tones,
Falling like balm,
And on the troubled heart
Steals a deep calm.
