We do not know the reason, Lord,
For much this puzzling world contains
For all that makes our little life
Half-full of sorrows, tears, and pains.
So much of it is good and sweet,
And rich in beauty, peace, and joy
Yet much is also evil, base,
The seeming gold a mere alloy.
Anil Ute ©rust
And yet we trust Thy world is good,
Beyond our puny wisdom's test.
And tho we cannot grasp Thy thought,
Yet, all in all, Thy plan is best.

And much that irritates, offends,
That bruises, wounds, and smarts
That wrings the soul in agony,
And breaks the stoutest human hearts.
The things we build we see destroyed,
The grave creeps near with every breath
And win or lose, desist or strive,
AH life is swallowed up in death.
S. N. Deinard.
