Author: Harriet Martineau, 1802-1876 Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #1409 Meter: 126.96.36.199 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal First Line: Faith grasps the blessing she desires Lyrics: 1. Faith grasps the blessing she desires,
Hope points the upward gaze;
And Love, celestial Love, inspires
The eloquence of praise.
2. But sweeter far the still small voice
Unheard by human ear,
When God has made the heart rejoice,
And dried the bitter tear.
3. No accents flow, no words ascend;
All utterance faileth there;
But God Himself doth comprehend
And answer silent prayer. Languages: English Tune Title: WESTMINSTER (Turle)
