There are thoughts which seem to come from heaven To calm all pain and strife; As dew falls on the parched flow'r To nurture it, to nourish it, to life. There came to me a happy thought, One morn when hope seem'd gone; It whisper'd low in accents sweet, O loving heart, trust on, trust on, One true heart beats for you alone. That happy thought shed o'er my life... A bright and joyful ray, As sunlight gilds the night's dim clouds Ere breaks the glorious day... My soul is bathed in sunshine. All gloomy dreams are gone; For that happy thought still whispers, O loving heart, trust on, trust on, One true heart beats for you alone.
