1
    I do not ask, O Lord, that life may be
  A pleasant road.
          Per Pacem ad Lucem.
2
    I know too well the poison and the sting
    Of things too sweet.
          Per Pacem ad Lucem.
3
    Joy is like restless day; but peace divine
      Like quiet night;
Lead me, O Lord,—till perfect Day shall shine
      Through Peace to Light.
          Per Pacem ad Lucem.
4
    Dreams grow holy put in action; work grows fair through starry dreaming,
But where each flows on unmingling, both are fruitless and in vain.
          Philip and Mildred.
5
    Seated one day at the organ,
  I was weary and ill at ease,
And my fingers wandered idly
  Over the noisy keys.
          A lost Chord.
6
    It seemed the harmonious echo
  From our discordant life.
          A lost Chord.
