Hymn

At morn- at noon- at twilight dim-
Maria! thou hast heard my hymn!
In joy and woe- in good and ill-
Mother of God, be with me still!
When the hours flew brightly by,
And not a cloud obscured the sky,
My soul, lest it should truant be,
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee;
Now, when storms of Fate o'ercast
Darkly my Present and my Past,
Let my Future radiant shine
With sweet hopes of thee and thine!

A fabulous hymn so brilliantly crafted...In joy and woe- in good and ill-Mother of God, be with me still............................beautiful ending....Let my Future radiant shine/With sweet hopes of thee and thine!
Thy grace did guide to thine and thee, sacred thoughts and surrendering to the mother of God.
..............a wonderful hymn, beautifully penned ★
