Aurora Awe


This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Shake off the dust of dreams waylaid 
Fling wide hope’s hoary door 
For this, the day the Lord has made 
Has never been before 

Reach past the cast of wave-washed sand 
To what is grand and new 
For where we go He holds our hand 
If we but ask Him to 

And though we cannot see what waits 
To tune trust’s latest buzz 
The One who draws ajar gauze-gates 
Of mist-kissed morning does

So many fresh cares to fill our prayers, right?!
Seems like so many young moms in this community 
are struggling with sudden, hard health-crosses

Made me look up this hymn this morning
when I cried 'Why?'
by Charles W. Naylor

God’s way is best; if human wisdom
A fairer way may seem to show,
’Tis only that our earth-dimmed vision
The truth can never clearly know.

God’s way is best, I will not murmur,
Although the end I may not see;
Where’er He leads I’ll meekly follow,
God’s way is best, is best for me.

Had I the choosing of my pathway,
In blindness I should go astray,
And wander far away in darkness,
Nor reach that land of endless day.

He leadeth true; I will not question,
Though through the valley I shall go;
Though I should pass through clouds of trial,
And drink the cup of human woe.

God’s way is best; heart, cease thy struggling
To see and know and understand;
Forsake thy fears and doubts, but trusting,
Submit thyself into His hand.

Thy way is best, so lead me onward,
My all I give to Thy control;
Thy loving hand will truly guide me,
And safe to glory bring my soul.
