From When Day is Done by Edgar A. Guest come these words:

When sorrow comes, as come it must, In God a man must put his trust

With all the wealth which he may own, He cannot meet the test alone,

And only he may stand serene, who has a faith on which to lean

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen
