IN THE WAY OF PEACE, by                    
First Line: Jesus, whose love rekindles dying fires
Last Line: When love and memory in thee shall meet.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Jesus, whose love rekindles dying fires
Flickering to ashes in our aching hearts,
Be Thou the goal of all our best desires,
The dawn from which our longing ne'er departs.

When night's grim loneliness throbs like a wound,
And day's bright sunshine stabs us like a sword,
Us, with thy peace, like traveler's cloak, around,
Enfold as we go forward, O our Lord.

Through the sharp thorns that lie along our way
Make thou a path for tired and bleeding feet;
And bring us to the wonder of that day
When Love and Memory in Thee shall meet.
