ULTIMA VERITAS

  1. IN the bitter waves of woe
  2. Beaten and tossed about
  3. By the sullen winds that blow
  4. From the desolate shores of doubt,—
  5. When the anchors that faith had cast
  6. Are dragging in the gale,
  7. I am quietly holding fast
  8. To the things that cannot fail:
  9. ...And fierce though the fiends may fight,
  10. And long though the angels hide,
  11. I know that Truth and Right
  12. Have the universe on their side;
  13. And that somewhere, beyond the stars,
  14. Is a Love that is better than fate;
  15. When the night unlocks her bars
  16. I shall see Him, and I will wait.
  17. -Washington Gladden
