WAITING FOR RETURNS OF JOY




Long have I on the willows hung
This tuneless harp of mine;
Heavy my heart, and slow my tongue,
Unfit for songs divine.


And shall I ever thus remain,
So dark, so sad, so dull?
Awake my soul! Tho’ streams run low,
The fountain’s ever full.


With new displays of pardoning love,
I will my songs renew;
And could I feel as angels feel,
I’d sing as angels do.
