SPEAK to Him thou, for He hears, and Spirit
with Spirit can meet—
Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands
RELIGION is no more possible without prayer, than poetry without language, or music without atmosphere. In the dumb heart it invariably dies; and where it lives, it is in the habitual faith that as we “give good gifts to our children, much more will the heavenly Father give His Holy Spirit to them that ask Him.”
BURY the dead; join hands in loving act and thought, and go forward. God created us for life; and do you fear that He will not reveal Himself to His creatures, when—assembled to interrogate their own hearts upon their own belief and to study the ways of the future—they invoke His aid?
