My sentiments today are expressed In the words of
Geo. C. Stebbins:
God holds the key of all unknown,
And I am glad
If other hands should hold the key,
Or if he trusted it to me
I might be sad.
What if tomorrow's care were here
Without its rest
I'd rather He unlocked the door
And as the hour swing open say
0 "My will is best".
The very dimness of my sight
Makes me secure,
For groping in my misty way,
I feel his hnd; I ear him say,
"My help is sure."
I cannot read His future plans;
But this I know:
I have the smiling of His face
And all the refuge of His grace,
While here below.
Enough this coven all my wants,
And so I rest.
For what I cannot, He can see,
And in His care I saved shall be,
For ever blest.
