Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
From Only a Word

Till our world, so sad and weary,
Finds the balmy rest of peace –
Peace to silence all her discords –
Peace till war and crime shall cease.

Peace to fall like gentle showers,
Or on parchéd flowers dew,
Till our hearts proclaim with gladness:
Lo, He maketh all things new.
