Poem for the Day

 

 

 

BEYOND THE SHADOWS

————————— 

FARTHER on beyond the shadows

Falling darkly o’er my way,

There is home, and rest and shelter,

Where no storms can e’er dismay.

 

Though the way be rough and narrow,

 And a cross must needs be borne,

Farther on the night is

Soon will dawn the welcome morn.

 

Meekly to His will submitting,

 In His Love secure and strong,

Jesus whispers, “Bide the shadows,

 It is better farther on.”

 

Farther on—O blest assurance!

How it thrills my raptured heart,

Just to know that I shall see Him

When the shadows all depart.

 

Let me still be strong and patient.

Trusting where I cannot trace.

Farther on—beyond all darkness

Faith can see God’s smiling face.

 

Only waiting, ever praying.

Let my heart be filled with song.

Sweet the promise Jesus gives me,

“It is better farther on."
