Best Poem of Thomas Cogswell Upham

Consolation In Sorrow

Although affliction smites my heart,
And earthly pleasures flee,
There is one bliss that ne'er shall part,
My joy, oh God, in Thee.

That joy is like the orb of day,
When clouds its track pursue;
The shades of darkness throng its way,
But sunlight struggles through.

Oh Thou, my everlasting light,
On whom my hopes rely;
With Thee the darkest path is bright,
And fears and sorrows die.

Read the full of Consolation In Sorrow

Christ Our Refuge

Dark is the watery way
Of life's tempestuous sea:
And none, Oh Christ, are safe, but they
Who put their trust in Thee.

Loud is the stormy wind;
The seaman are afraid;
But those shall strength and mercy find,
Whose souls on Christ are stayed.

[Hata Bildir]
