[Written for the Sentinel]

Obedience

Let me reflect Thy light from day to day;Let me but see the way that I should go;Let me so keep my heart at-one with TheeThat I may see what Thy dear will may be,And, seeing, do as Thou wouldst have me do.Not many days agoneI thought to do my willAnd bend each thing and path into my way.Alas, for such a thought! It leads astrayInto a world of chaos and of strife.It binds the heart and blinds the sightTo the real purposes of Life.But now, Love's lesson learnedIn some degree through Love's own chastisement,This is my prayer, dear Father, that Thy lightMay shine through me as golden and as pureAs the sun's rays through every window lightShine in our homes with heaven's promise sure,That clouds, however dark, shall meltBefore that Sun that doth for aye endure.

We'd love to hear from you!
