George MacDonald Poems

Little Bo-Peep

Little Bo-Peep, she has lost her sheep,
And will not know where to find them;
They are over the height and out of sight,


LORD, I do choose the higher than my will.
I would be handled by thy nursing arms
After thy will, not my infant alarms.


Trust him in the common light;
Trust him in the awesome night;

Trust him when the earth doth quake:


Where did you come from, baby dear?
Out of the everywhere into here.

A Broken Prayer

O Lord, my God, how long
Shall my poor heart pant for a boundless joy?
How long, O mighty Spirit, shall I hear
