    THE DYING YEAR.   Table of Contents     DOUBT.

Thompson, Clara Ann
Songs From the Wayside

- HIS ANSWER.

HIS ANSWER.



He prayed for patience; Care and Sorrow
came,
And dwelt with him, grim and unwelcome guests;
He felt their galling presence night and day;
And wondered if the Lord had heard him
pray,
And why his life was filled with weariness.

He prayed again; and now he prayed for light;
The darkness parted, and the light shone in;
And lo! he saw the answer to his prayed--
His heart had learned, through weariness
and care,
The patience, that he deemed he'd sought
in vain.
