Poem

Not a verse today, but a poem.

 

The future is a blank without a view.

That which I wanted most, You have denied;

I cannot understand (and I have tried);

There’s nothing I can do but wait on You.

 

Earth offered much, and I had, lingering long

Outside her lighted windows, wistful grown –

Till at my side I heard a voice – Your own.

Lord, how could I resist a love so strong?

 

Take all away. I am content to know

Such love is mine – for life is all too brief

To grieve for pleasures bringing only grief;

Give me but You; it is enough just so.

 

Enough – and more! Such love for You keeps growing –

In You I find my deepest joy complete,

All longing satisfied, and pain made sweet;

In You my cup is filled to overflowing.

 

  • Ruth Bell Graham

May you be filled with the deepest joy complete as you spend time at the Savior’s feet.
