Though I Do Not Understand
'In pastures green?
Not always; sometimes He
Who knoweth best, in kindness leadeth me
in weary ways, where heavy shadows be;
out of the sunshine, warm and soft and bright,
out of the sunshine into darkest night.
I oft would faint with sorrow and affright,
only for this: I know He holds my hand.
So whether in green or desert land
I trust Him, though I do not understand.'
(from Fervorinos From Galilee's Hills, compiled by a Religious, Pelligrini, Australia, 1936, p. 227)
