Franz W. Abt (1819–1882)


Trust the Eter­nal, when the sha­dows ga­ther,
When joys of day­light seem so like a dream;
God the un­chang­ing, pi­ties like a fa­ther:
Trust on and wait, the day­star yet shall gleam.

Trust the Eter­nal, for the clouds that van­ish
No more can move the mount­ains from their base
Than sin’s il­lus­ive wreaths of mist can ban­ish
Light from His throne or lov­ing from His face.

Trust the Eter­nal, re­pent in meek­ness
Of that heart’s pride which frowns and will not yield,
Then to thy child-heart shall come strength in weak­ness,
And thine im­mor­tal life shall be re­vealed.
