Who made the heart, 'tis He alone Decidedly can try us; He knows each chord- its various tone, Each spring- its various bias; Then at the balance let's be mute, We never can adjust it; What's done we partly may compute, But know not what's resisted.- "Poems with Power to Strengthen the Soul", Various.
