Say Not, My Soul

The Disciplines of Life, by V. Raymond Edman (Minneapolis: World Wide Publ., 1948), p. 78.

Say not, my soul, "From whenceCan God relieve my care?Remember that OmnipotenceHath servants everywhere.

His help is always sure,His methods seldom guessed;Surprise will give it zest.Delay will make our pleasure pure;

His wisdom is sublime,His heart profoundly kind;God never is before His time,And never is behind.

Hast thou assumed a loadWhich none will bear with thee?And art thou bearing it for God,And shall He fail to see?

- J. J. Lynch
