And know not the right from the wrongi No beckoning lingera dtre^t me, No welcome floats to me in song; But my guide will soon give me a ttdcen By wilderness, monntain or lake— Wbatover the darkness abont me, “ He knoweth the way tiiat I talce.** And I know that the way leadeth homeward To the land of &e pnre and the blest, To the conntiy of ever-fair snmmer, To the city of peace and of re s t; And t l l ^ shall be iiealing for sidcness, And fbantidnB, life's fever to slaira.

"HEKNOWETHTHE WAT THAT
I knownot—the way if so misty—
The ]oyi or the griefs it shall bring,
What cloDds are o’erhanslng the fatare.
What flowers by the r e s i d e shall q>ring;
But there's One who will Joomey beside me,
Nor in weal nor in woe wiU foraake;
And tills is my solace and comfort—
“ He knoweth the way th a t I take.”
I stand where the crosa-roads are meeting.
And know not the right from the wrongi
No beckoning lingera dtre^t me,
No welcome floats to me in song;
But my guide will soon give me a ttdcen
By wilderness, monntain or lake—
Wbatover the darkness abont me,
“ He knoweth the way tiiat I talce.**
And I know that the way leadeth homeward
To the land of &e pnre and the blest,
To the conntiy of ever-fair snmmer,
To the city of peace and of re s t;
And t l l ^ shall be iiealing for sidcness,
And fbantidnB, life's fever to slaira.
What matters beside? I go heaTenward—
*‘ Ho knoweth the way that I take."
