Lyrics of Life (1909)/Conflict and Rest

Through the long voyage we may welcome day,
 Glad when the night is gone,
So many threat'ning perils of the way
 Vanish before the dawn;

And yet a deeper darkness we may crave
 When strife indeed is past,
And we from stress of tempest and of wave
 Are nearing port at last.
