These words, written over seventy years ago, are just as timely today as they were then:
“Oh, for a faith that will not shrink
Though pressed by every foe,
That will not tremble on the brink
Of any earthly woe!
That will not murmur or complain
Beneath the chast’ning rod,
But, in the hour of grief or pain,
Will lean upon its God:
A faith that shines more bright and clear
When tempests rage without;
That when in danger knows no fear,
In darkness feels no doubt.
Lord, give us each a faith as this.
