Faith
By Alice Lucas
 
   And the Lord, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee; fear not, neither be dismayed.—Deuteronomy, xxxi, 8.
  My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.—Exodus, xxxiii, 14.

OF all Thy gifts the best.
  On us Thy needy people, sore distress’d,
Sore travel worn, and stained with sin and woe,
  Of all Thy gifts the best.
 
Then shall we find, amid life’s toilsome quest,        5
  The peace of God, from which all blessings flow.
Then shall no evil fears our souls molest.
 
Faith, faith in Thee, faith that, where’er we go,
  Thy presence goes with us, and gives us rest
That is in heaven above, on earth below,        10
  Of all Thy gifts the best!
