LILIES: 13. 'LET US NEVER COMFORT EACH OTHER INTO SLEEP', by            
First Line: Yet let us comfort. Comfort is a part
Last Line: To love's voice; yieldeth to no other tone.


Yet let us comfort. Comfort is a part
Of that strong help which either spirit needs:
It lifts, it soothes, it purifies each heart!
God's touch is gentle, when the pierced soul bleeds.
When anger fails, a softer speech succeeds
Full often; the great victories are won
By patience, and the everlasting deeds
By everlasting tenderness are done,
And out of love the angels' robes are spun,
And sweetest pity in God's loom is woven,
And he is crowned with mercy like a sun:—
By bitter lightning trees in twain are cloven,
But not the human heart: it bends alone
To Love's voice; yieldeth to no other tone.
