What though our eyes with tears be wet?
The sunrise never failed us yet.

That sunrise never failed us yet!

The heart of God through his creation stirs,
We thrill to feel it, trembling as the flowers
That die to live again, — his messengers,
To keep faith firm in these sad souls of ours.

The frosts of age may check our failing breath,
They shall not touch the spirit that survives
Triumphant over doubt and pain and death.

~ Celia Thaxter ~
