Madison Julius Cawein (Мэдисон Джулиус Кавейн)
A Light in the Window
Rain and wind and candlelight And let us pray a prayer to-night: For every soul, since life is brief, Little of trouble and less of grief. And set a light at the windowpane, To guide Love home through the night and rain. Rain and wind and candlelight And what shall we pray again to-night? For every life, whose way is dim, The grace of God and trust in Him. A word, a song, till the tears be dried, And Faith and Hope sit down beside. Rain and wind and candlelight And one last prayer to pray to-night: For every heart in the dark and rain To know its prayer is not in vain: A door flung wide, and a face aglow Love come back from the Long-Ago. Then let the rain and the wind without Threaten their worst and rave and shout: For who will care, though the night is black Love to his own has wandered back. Has wandered back through the rain and night, Led home again by her candle's light.
