• “Is it possible that you can trust your fellow men…that you can commit your dearest earthly interests to your weak, failing fellow creatures without a fear, and are afraid to commit your spiritual interests to the Saviour who laid down His life for you, and of whom it is declared that He is “able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him”? – Hannah Whitall Smith

The Widowed Heart by Charlotte Elliot

For thee, poor widowed heart, 
In vain sweet spring returns ; 
The charm of vernal songs and flowers, 
The joys reviving nature showers. 
Touch not the heart that mourns ; 
Or touch it so, 
As wakes fresh woe 
For one all darkly laid, this blooming earth below ! 

Yet, still, poor widowed heart, 
Though desolate and sad, 
The thought — thy mourned one ne'er can know 
Thine own unutterable woe — 
Almost might make thee glad ! 
The blest deplore 
Earth's griefs no more; 
And though thy joys are fled, thy loved one's tears 
are o'er. 

Poor broken, widowed heart. 
To God disclose thy pain ! 
Earth yields no cure ; but Heaven has given 
A balm for hearts bereft and riven, 
A balm ne'er tried in vain : 
That volume bright, 
Where beams of light 
Illume the Eternal Words, reveals it to thy sight.
