  • My Master and my Lord!
    I long to do some work, some work for Thee;
    I long to bring some lowly gift of love
    For all Thy love to me.
    • Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 120.
  • Thou wilt draw nigh!
    Father — it is no dream that Thou art near —
    No dream that, in my sin and misery,
    I may look up to Thee,—
    May hide beneath the shadow of Thy wings,
    From all the restlessness of outward things,
    And from my own heart's self-accusing fears —
    For Thou art nigh.
    • Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 432.
  • Like dew on drooping blossoms,
    Like breath from Holy place,
    Laden with health and healing,
    Come Thy deep words of grace:
    "Thy strength is all in leaning
    On One who fights for thee;
    Thine is the helpless clinging,
    And mine the victory."
    • Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 595.
