April 14ths Daily Cheer

The white flowers, freed

From snowy sepulchres, may speak

“Oh, fear not ye!

The Saviour whom ye seek

Is risen indeed!

-Frances R. Havergal

~*~

From the eternal shadow rounding

All our sun and starlight here,

Voices of our lost ones sounding

Bid us be of heart and cheer

Through silence, down the spaces, falling on the inward ear

Know we not our dead are looking

Downward with sad surprise,

At our strife of words and rebuking

With their mild and loving eyes?

Shall we grieve these holy angels? Shall we cloud their blessed skies?

-John Greenleaf Whittier.
