[Written for the Sentinel]


When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.—Isaiah.

Loving Father, piloting me
Through the waves of the boisterous sea,
Proving always,
Thy power to show,
Though we pass through the waters,
They cannot o'erflow;

Gracious Father, governing me
In every experience through the sea
Of mortal beliefs and scenes of woe,
How glad I am to pass with Thee
Through the deepest waters,
For they cannot o'erflow.

Blessed Father, controlling me,
Living promise to humanity!
Thou bearest us up to a height so high
That we see and feel and readily know,
Though the waves overtake us,
They cannot o'erflow.
