Who Art Thou, God?





Oh Thou who sets in place
The morning, noon and night
Who cups the dawn in mercy’s palm
And spills its gold delight

Oh Thou, who fills the sky
With heaven-tenured strain
And tunes the earth with nature’s mirth
In myriad refrain

Oh Thou who holds the fount
Of Times four-season ken
And rends this span with Heaven’s plan
To test the hearts of men

Oh Thou who loves each one
Knowing intimately
What You have wrought; unscripted thought
Cannot be hid from Thee

Oh Thou; who art Thou, God
Who knows our secret pain?
Why this is He who sets us free
