Margaret Junkin Preston
The lotos bowed above the tide and dreamed.
Preston quotes
With guilt's defilement stained, without, within,
How may I hope Thy cleansing grace to win?
Because Thou saidst, "I have forgiven thy sin."
Gracious as sunshine, sweet as dew
Shut in a lily's golden core.

Preston Margaret Junkin quotes
White as the blossoms which the almond tree,
Above its bald and leafless branches bears.
Preston Margaret Junkin
Pain is no longer pain when it is past.
Margaret Junkin Preston quotes
The pure memories given
To help our joy on earth, when earth is past,
Shall help our joy in heaven.
