Break thro' the clouds, dear Lord, and shine,
Let us perceive thee nigh!
And to each mourning child of thine,
These gracious words apply:


Let not my children slight the stroke
I for chastisement send;
Nor faint beneath my kind rebuke,
For I am still their friend.


"The wicked I perhaps may leave
Awhile and not reprove;
But all the children I receive,
I scourge, because I love.


I see your hearts at present fill'd
With grief and deep distress;
But soon these bitter seeds shall yield
The fruits of righteousness."
