[John Muir and family]
be given to man when the time is come to open his lips. But let a greater singer voice out sympathy today, and speak to you in strength and banish fear and trembling, and give to you the peace that is past understanding."Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.There may be many that say, "Who will show us any good? Lord lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.[illegible]
