"I LOOK to Thee in every need,
And never look in vain,
I feel Thy touch, Eternal Love,
The thought of Thee is mightier far

THESE poems have been brought together from many sources, old and new, with the hope that their notes of encouragement and cheerfulness may help to carry strength and courage into daily life. I have repeated here two poems which were printed in "Quiet Hours," because I could not spare them. They are, "Thou Grace Divine encircling all," and "I look to Thee in every need." I have taken the liberty of substituting the word "chafing" for "craven" in the first line of "Alone with God," and "mother" for "bosom" in the first verse of "How beautiful our lives may be."
I must express my thanks to Messrs. J. R. Osgood & Co., Scribner & Co., and Roberts
Brothers for their permission to use copy. righted poems. And I make grateful ac knowledgments to the authors who have so kindly allowed me to use their poems.
