 A friend in whom there is no guile,
Who'll keep a confidence,
give a smile,
That will not in your trying hour Forsake you,
but give strength and power,
One to whom you can always go,
Pour out your trouble and your woe,
Share in your sadness or life's delights,
In rosy morn or darkest of nights.
A book to read in the twilight hours,
Forgetting the world,
its sunshine and showers,
Therein to read the things of our Lord,
The Great Architect—His wonderful word,
To know that like Him who mingled with others,
That each one is equal and all men are brothers.
A lone country lane with high leafy trees,
A warm summer evening,
a soft evening breeze,
T o walk there with nature,
to f eel God is there,
To cast off our burdens and all earthly care,
Scan the wild flowers,
probe to the heart,
To feel that in nature we are a part,
That God' s ever mindful of all He has made,
We are His image,
His wonderful shade.
A friend,
a book,
a lone country lane,
These are worthwhile when day starts to wane,
They help us to know that we're truly blest,
For in them we find a sweet solace and rest.
