When weary, tired, and needitv,•.rest
I reach the spot that I love heit = ,
My home, sweet home, my resting niece,
Where many a smiling, cheerful face
I wish to meet, I hope to &lib,
And word and look, both sweet and kind
speak softly, speak sweetly,
You'll rest me completely.
When through a day of toil and care,
And many an hour of work and wear,
I reach my home, there let me see '
Affection, yes; pure love' for
Oh ! let me feel at home a bliss
Which in all places else I miss—
Speak.softly, speak-sweetly,—
You'abless me completely. ,
Whon troubled by mistakee;lfind
A burden be r artken my , mind;
And in my heart a gleniny
Of grief untold, which, when I'm kneeling
Before my God, beclouds the mind,
When 1 relief from God would find—
.Seenk4oftlY:, speak sweetly,
It may case me completely.
When all my hours and days I spend
For loved ones who on me depend,
When I have used my strength and mind
For those dear loved ones, let me find—
Yes, let me feel these -loved ones dear,
Solicitous my heart to cheer
Speak softly, speak sweetly,
You'll cheer me completely,
When I'M Werwhelmed with doubt and grief
And seek froM others heart relief,
Which others have no will or power
T' give mein the needy hour;
Then home I turn, to loved ones there,
Who speak with me the heartfelt prayer,
:;() softly and sweetly,
They bless me completely.
Sounds sweet may often fill the ear—
May cause our gloom to disappear—
qounds struck from 'n ktrtiments of art,
That charm and soolie the gloomy heart;
But instrumental music's power,
Nnr stranger's voice, in gloorny -hour,
Can't reach the soul like hey ',lore,
Who speaks like me just from above,
So softly, so sweetly,
She charms me completely. ,
e soul has power to know and feel
A bliss which words cannot reveal—
A bliss on earth sent from aboye— ..
A bliss which mortals here call lova—
A Wiss in essence pure, dtvi.oe—
A blis that does our souls refine,
'Tis heard In sweet atfection's tone,
'Tis seen to love's bright face alone;
Where softly and sweetly,
It o'erwhelms us completely.
e pure, the blight, itie, beautiful,
That stirred out hearts in youth,
Tby impulse toa . worldless . prayer,
The dream or loVe'ittid - trath,•
longylgs after something lost,
'l•he Spirit's Yearning cry,'
TLe strivings after better Impeg--
These things can never die. •
The timid hand stretched forth to aid
A brother in his need,
The kindly word in grief's dark hour
That proves tha friend indeed,
The plea for mercy, softly breathed,„
When justice thresteps.higb,
The sorrow of a centrite heart—
These things shah' never dle.
The mmory
,of aielasping hand,
The pressure of a kiss,
And all thelrides, sweet and frail;
That make up loVe's first bliss,
if with a firm, unchanging faith, .
And holy, trust and nigh,
'hose harids have clasped, and lips fiaie met
Those things shall never die.
The cruel andlhe - bitter word,
That wounded as it fell :
T!ir , chillinivrantnf spri'pahr

'1 harsh repulse' that chills the heart
Whose hopes 'are bounding high;

These things shall never die.

:Aug. find some work totlo ;
Lase not a chance to waken love—r

So shall a light that cannot fade
Beam on thee from OR high,
And angel voices say to thee,

she would not advise Ralph—he must
