“Our God is love, and he will save
All souls from sin,
And they shall win
The victory over the dark grave;
His punishments are just and right,
Leading the soul through pain to light.
The winter’s snow
Takes long to go;
But underneath the flowers wait
All patiently, though spring be late.
Wait thou his time, wait thou his way;
To-morrow will explain to-day.”
–Rev. Edwin J. Chaffee
