FAITH




Faith is the glass by which we spy
Things far above the azure sky;
The shield which guards from fiery darts,
And courage gives to trembling hearts.


It works by love, with zeal inspires,
‘Midst rugged paths nor faints nor tires;
From gloomy apprehensions frees,
And God its author seek to please.


Of thou from whom all virtues flow,
This precious grace on me bestow;
It is thy gift, most rich and free,
impart it, dearest Lord, to me.
