XXXVI. I yearn to know my Author’s master plan

Wait for the LORD, take courage; be stouthearted, wait for the LORD! –Psalm 27:14

I yearn to know my Author’s master plan,

My life’s design, my purpose in this world;

To see what lies beyond this desert’s span,

This seeming wasteland in whose midst I’m hurled.

“How long, O Lord?” my heart sends forth its cry.

‘Tis owed no answer, thus it none receives.

I trust He’s not ignored my constant sigh,

Not He who unto death my slav’ry grieves.

What need or right have I to know His course?

For me it is to follow; Freedom leads.

Of strength and hope I lack, He is the source.

He’s Life itself, and on that Life, I feed.

Could such Love ever harm me? Guide me wrong?

Be meek now. Let thanks ever be your song.
