Where the world comes to study the Bible

Say Not, My Soul

Say not, my soul, “From whence
Can God relieve my care'
Remember that Omnipotence
Hath servants everywhere.

His help is always sure,
His methods seldom guessed;
Surprise will give it zest.
Delay will make our pleasure pure;

His wisdom is sublime,
His heart profoundly kind;
God never is before His time,
And never is behind.

Hast thou assumed a load
Which none will bear with thee'
And art thou bearing it for God,
And shall He fail to see'

- J. J. Lynch
