An epiphany

J. S. B. Monsell’s hymn O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness declares in the fourth stanza, “mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness”.

After the kind of week I’ve had, I can’t help feeling that a more useful dictum might be “evenings of joy make for mornings of tearfulness”…
