Smith, Effie Waller
|SONGS OF THE MONTHS.|
|THOU WILT KEEP THEM.|
Thou in perfect peace will keep them,
They whose minds on thee are stayed;
Though the evil one may tempt them,
They shall still be unafraid.
Clouds may lower and darkness gather,
Billows furiously may roll;
Need we trouble when our Father
Speakest peace unto the soul.
Peace without one ray of terror,
Peace that comforts day by day;
Peace that passeth understanding,
May it keep our hearts alway!
