Analyzing Outlooks

Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth 
by your great power and outstretched arm. 
Nothing is too hard for you.


Darling, do your dreams seem futile
As the streams that forward flow
Through a hue of green-blue-purple
To a place we do not know

Darling, does your heart beat broken
By the art of push and shove
While each morning metes its token
Of mercy’s unspoken love

Darling, are you filled with anguish
For a shore of summers spent
Does your spirit thrive or languish
In this world of discontent

Darling, in life’s test and trouble
Have you learned a deeper joy
Than the elemental bubble
That a stiff wind will destroy

Darling, are you humbly thankful
For time’s fresh favor from God
Where each day is like a jewel
In a crown of season-sod
