His Way Is Best
by Gertrude Seibert
How sweet to feel God's will is best,
And in this precious thought to rest;
O how, whatever may betide,
'Tis best, for He is by our side!
Oh, how it helps us bear the pain,
Oh, how it makes us strong again!
The cold and gloom of darkest night
It fills with warmth and heavenly light!
To those who take His will as best,
He grants His perfect peace and rest,
And ever gives them day by day
His grace sufficient on the way.
Then why should hearts grow weak or faint,
Why should we ever make complaint?
Let us press on with upturned face,
And follow where we cannot trace.
His way is best,
His way is best-
And in this precious tho't I'll rest;
I know, whatever may betide,
He'll never, never leave my side.
