I Love to Steal Away by Phoebe Hinsdale Brown

I LOVE to steal awhile away 
 From every cumbering care,
And spend the hours of setting day 
 In humble, grateful prayer.
 I love, in solitude, to shed       
The penitential tear;
And all His promises to plead, 
When none but God can hear.
 
I love to think on mercies past, 
 And future good implore;        
And all my cares and sorrows cast 
 On Him whom I adore. 
 
I love, by faith, to take a view  
Of brighter scenes in heaven;
The prospect doth my strength renew,        
While here by tempests driven.
 
Thus, when life’s toilsome day is o’er, 
 May its departing ray
Be calm as this impressive hour,  
And lead to endless day.

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
