God takes our clearest—ever so ; The reason why we cannot know ;
Helpless He leaves us , crush'd with woe . " OhFather ! anything hut this ,
Oh , ! "blot not out our life ' s sole "bliss . " So cry we , yet we pray amiss .
For answer comes not to the prayer , No word—no comfort anywhere ;
And we are struck with mute despair . To see our dearest pass away ,
To know we cannot bid it stay , To feel our loss grow day bday ; _^
Oh . ! 'tis the sharpest pang of pain ,
That He to mortals cloth ordain ; The bitt ' rest cup our lips must drain .
Ne ' er was , nor shall he , human heart ,. But it must bear that "bitter smart ;
Must with its ownits dearest part . , The idol set up . on the throne
Where God should beand God alone ; , The idol must he overthrown ;
" Father" from out the depth doth rise , , u Ask' of me other sacrifice .
This thing is clearest in my eyes . " He seems as if He heard thee not ,
Yet is no child by Him forgot ;
No'loneliness where He is not .
