Never yet in darkest mood...

From the April 1897 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Never yet in darkest mood Doubted I that Thou wast good, Nor mistook my will for fate, Pain of sin for heavenly hate,— Never dreamed the gates of pearl Rise from out the burning marl, Or that good can only live Of the had conservative, And through counterpoise of hell Heaven alone be possible. — Whittier.
