Trust in God

Charles Harpur

DEEP trust in God—for that I still have sought
        Through all the grim doubts that bemock the soul,
When in the amazement of far-reaching throught,
        We list the labourings that for ever roll
Like dubious thunders through those clouded regions
        Where night and destiny the counsels keep
Of Time developing his shadowy legions.
And when I ve stood upon some hazardous steep
        Of speculation—heaving up its bare
        And rugged ridge high in the nebulous air
Of endless change, and thence tremendously
        Throwing its shadow, like a blind man’s stare,
Out through the dread unknown—deep trust in Thee,
O God! Hath likewise been my refuge there.
