“The Tide is Sure to Win” – by Priscilla Leonard

* * * * * * *

On the far reef the breakers recoil in shattered foam,

While still the sea behind them urges its forces home.

Its song of triumph surges o’er all the thunderous din:

The wave may break in failure, But, THE TIDE IS SURE TO WIN

***

The reef is strong and cruel upon its jagged wall.

One wave, a score, a hundred, broken and beaten, fall.

Yet in defeat they conquer, the sea comes flooding in,

Wave upon wave is routed, But, THE TIDE IS SURE TO WIN!

***

Oh! Mighty sea, thy message in clanging spray is cast.

Within God’s plan of progress it matters not at last

How wide the shores of evil, How strong the reefs of sin.

The wave may be defeated, But, THE TIDE IS SURE TO WIN!
