For all the questions men may put to Him,
Our God has answer. Lo, the anguished cry
Of how or when or where or what or why
Has right solution here and now. No whim
Of erring, selfish mortal mind can dim
The confidence of any who rely
On God alone to give the one reply—
The one right answer—without interim!

The way made clear, take care to follow straight,
And do not ask another to approve.
Close both your hearing and your thoughts to doubt;
Go on until you are within the gate
Of heaven, harmony. None can remove
You hence, for you have worked your problem out.

Wilhelmina Belle Barnes
