_Let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: … let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee_.–PS. v. 11.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.–PS. xxiii. 2.

I can hear these violets chorus To the sky’s benediction above; And we all are together lying On the bosom of Infinite Love.
Oh, the peace at the heart of Nature! Oh, the light that is not of day! Why seek it afar forever, When it cannot be lifted away?
W. C. GANNETT.
What inexpressible joy for me, to look up through the apple-blossoms and the fluttering leaves, and to see God’s love there; to listen to the thrush that has built his nest among them, and to feel God’s love, who cares for the birds, in every note that swells his little throat; to look beyond to the bright blue depths of the sky, and feel they are a canopy of blessing,–the roof of the house of my Father; that if clouds pass over it, it is the unchangeable light they veil; that, even when the day itself passes, I shall see that the night itself only unveils new worlds of light; and to know that if I could unwrap fold after fold of God’s universe, I should only unfold more and more blessing, and see deeper and deeper into the love which is at the heart of all.
ELIZABETH CHARLES.
