[Written for the Sentinel]

I Thank Thee, God, That Thou Art All

When I do know that Thou art All, O God,
A sense of calm assurance comes; and though
My path be strewn with obstacles, I find
It possible to follow on, my hand
In Thine! And as Thou leadest me beyond
The maze where fear or doubt would baffle me,
Oh, then I pause in deep humility,
My heart to rest within Thy wondrous light,
My feet to stand more firmly on the rock,
My voice to cry aloud in gratitude
That Thou art All.

When thus I firmly stand and realize
Infinitude is Thine, a sense of peace
Unbounded comes to me. And later when
I look within, behold, my heart is washed
And purified. The seeds of error, sown
In moments not alert, are rooted up,
And in their place a tranquil glow of love
Is found. My consciousness becomes aware
Of what regeneration means, and as
Thy ways become more clearly seen, thanks Thee
That Thou art All.
