MESSAGES, by            
First Line: We flash a thought across the wave
Last Line: His soul attuned to trust.
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed

WE flash a thought across the wave,
A voice gives glad return,
And yet how strange that from the grave
Comes not the word we yearn!
Thought leaps the hills and spans the sea,
Nor needs the singing wires,
But in the great eternity
We seem to strike no fires.

Small is our faith and short our sight
If we hear not the word
Which from the future's starless night
By great souls has been heard;
Our heart-pleas pass to His far deeps
And His grace leaps the dust,
But only he receives who keeps
His soul attuned to trust.
