THROUGH the long voyage we may welcome day,"Conflict and Rest" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Lyrics of Life (1909).
Glad when the night is gone,
So many threat'ning perils of the way
Vanish before the dawn;
And yet a deeper darkness we may crave
When strife indeed is past,
And we from stress of tempest and of wave
Are nearing port at last.
