Streams in the desert

A fellow mummy recently posted this beautiful poem that resonates with me. It was very timely and apt, and somehow gave me strength within.


We cannot see what loss, sorrow, and trials are accomplishing.
We need only to trust.

He leads us on by paths we did not know;
Upward He leads us,

Though our steps be slow,
Though oft we faint and falter on the way,
Though storms and darkness oft obscure the day;
Yet when the clouds are gone,
We know He leads us on.

He leads us on through all the unquiet years;
Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fears,

He guides our steps,
through all the tangled maze Of losses, sorrows,
and o’er clouded days;

We know His will is done;
And still He leads us on.

~~~~ Nicholaus Ludwig Zinzendorf
