"The Weaver"

J.B. Hernley

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me,

I may not choose the colors, He knows what they should be.

For He can view the pattern upon the upper side,

While I can see it only on this, the under side.

"Sometimes He weaveth sorrow, which seems strange to me;

But I will trust His judgment and work as faithfully;

’Tis He who fills the shuttle, He knows just what is best,

So I shall weave in earnest and leave with Him the rest.

Not til the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly

Shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why --

The dark threads are as needful in the weaver’s skillful hand

As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern he has planned.
