I Would Not Have You Grieve For Me Today
I would not have you grieve for me today
Nor weep beside my vacant chair,
Could you but know my daily portion here,
You would not, could not, wish me there.
I know why He said, 'Ear hath not heard.'
I have no words, no alphabet,
Or even if I had, I dare not tell,
Because you could not bear it yet.
So, only this...I am the same, though changed.
Like Him! A joy more rich and strong
Than I had dreamed that any heart could hold,
And all my life is one glad song.
Sometimes when you are talking to our Lord
He turns and speaks to me...Dear ...
