THERES REST FOR ALL IN HEAVEN. P
n-Y FINLEY J3omsO,
Should sombre clouds of sorrow rise, t
And shadows o'er us tlinu, e
And hopes that ince hare taken root
Die in thpir early spring ;
Should every .Joy and bliss of life
Fade like the dcws of even,
We still have this sweet solace left
There's rest for all in heaven.
If life's pathway should seem to us
A dull and beaten track,
And all our deep and holy love,
Dv grief be driven back;
If we are like the wearriei dove,
O'er -lireoess ocean driven,
0, let us raise our eyes above
There's re-t 'or all in heaven.
Should sickness pale the rosy cheek,
And ilim the radiant eye,
And every pulse that faintly throbs
Tell of a time to die;
0, then iidleed unto the world
Our thaou:its should not be aiven,1
For we iuust ne'er foraet the truth
There's rest for all in heave:i.
