The Lord is our Keeper

 Image Source:brianberlin.net

We cannot keep one moment
It passes through our clasp
The unknown becomes known to us
In forms we cannot grasp

The dawn dissolves the darkness
Life’s joy and sorrow feat
Awaits; and only God can see
The unknowns we must meet

We cannot keep from coming
Life’s goodness or its gale
But the God of the mountain-top
Walks with us through the vale

We cannot know His power
Until, in utter need
We realize that we are lost
Without His hand to lead

To keep us in His Keep
