There are songs in the night
Which the light of day cannot reach
It takes sorrow of soul to touch that deep

There is peace of spirit
That joy cannot bring
It takes loss to still the heart’s constant stirring

There is humbleness of heart
Only gained through pain
And in earth’s broken things, is Christ’s greatest gain

For to be whole in spirit, flesh must be rent
To be holy within, the will must be bent

 Neither comes except by a fall…
