So all things are working for the Lord's beloved,
Some things might be heart-full if alone they stood,
Some things might seem to hinder, some to draw us backwards,
But they work together and they work for good.
All the thwarted longings, all the stern denials,
All the contradictions hard to understand.
And the force that holds, speeds them, and retards them,
Stops and starts and guides them, is our Father's hand!
Sincerely a co-worker for Christ
