My life is but a weavingBetween my Lord and me,I cannot choose the colorsHe worketh steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrowAnd I in foolish prideForget He sees the upperAnd I, the underside.

Not till the loom is silentAnd the shuttles cease to flyShall God unroll the canvasAnd explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needfulIn the Weaver's skillful handAs the threads of gold and silverIn the pattern He has planned.
