I know my God is able to deliver;
Able to save from direst human ill;
Able, as when He saved the Hebrew children
But if, perchance, His plans are not my plans;
If hid in darkness should my pathway be;
If when I plead He does not seem to answer,
Nor care for me
Then, though men scoff and bitterly deride me
Listen! I fling my challenge to the sky!
God may deliver, but if not, Ill trust Him,
And trusting, die!
- M. Mannington Dexter
