John Henry Newman


May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen, and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done!
Then in His mercy may He give us safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last!
Sermon 20

Newman Societies

Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home—
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet: I do not ask to see
The distant scene,—one step enough for me. The Pillar of Cloud
