Love

Sarah Fuller Flower Adams (or Sally Adams) was an English poet and hymnwriter, best known for writing the words of the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee".






O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
Thou lookest in a grave,--to see
Thine immortality!
