We glory in tribulation: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope. Rom. 5:3, 4
Then let us wait the' appointed day,
Nor call this world our home;
To pilgrims in a foreign land,
Afflictions needs must come.
Who rule the world, o'errules their end,
They destined are for good;
And bear the saints to realms of rest,
Though mighty as a flood.
