Calmly we look behind us, on joys
and sorrows past,
We know that all is mercy now,
and shall be well at last;
Calmly we look before us, --
we fear no future ill,
Enough for safety and for peace,
if Thou art with us still.
~ Jane Borthwick
Ah, well, the Father's gift a lovely bright and shiny new year!
All is grace and mercy, love and joy ♥
