From "The Gate of the Year"
By Minnie Louise Haskins, 1908.
And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
"Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!"
And he replied:
"Go into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way!"
So, I went forth and, finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.
And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.
So, heart, be still!
What need our little life,
Our human life, to know,
If God hath comprehension?
In all the dizzy strife
Of things both high and low,
God hideth his intention.
