	Out of the night a sob was heard,
	        Of a life aware of a loss,
	In a world where Self was the thing that lured,
	         And all that glittered was dross.
	It groaned of despair and grieving,
	         Of a trusting love that died,
	Along with the joy of believing,
	          When all its world had lied.
	It moaned of an anguished acheing,
	          Of a brave heart wounded sore,
	When idols of clay, when breaking,
	           Are idols that rise no more.
	It sobbed with a silent sorrow,
	           For countless souls tramping on,
	With no rest in eternal tomorrow,
	           `Til returns the faith that is gone.


	Out of the dawn a song was born,
	           In the mists of a surging sea,
	And the wind that arose in that early morn,
	           Sang it on in eternity.
	It sang of white clouds drifting,
	           And of surf on a distant shore,
	Of the light  from the storm-clouds lifting,
	           And the darkness that comes before.
	It sang of the highways winding,
	           Far over hill and lea,
	And the swirl of rivers finding,
	           Their course to a waiting sea.
	It sang with  a breath abated,
                       Of a mother bird on her nest,
	Of the wonderful love of the mated,
	            And a babe at its mothers breast.


	Out from the sob a prayer was made,
	           And the songs far speeding call,
	Sang the truth of life, while the soul that had strayed,
	           Knew HIM for the God of  all.
