C.M.


1
IT is not with uncertain step
We tread our desert way;
A well-known voice has called us up
To everlasting day -
2
The voice of Him who here has trod
Alone the trackless way
(And marked the road which leads to God)
Where once we, lost, did stray.
3
He leaves us not alone to trace
Our path across the waste;
But leads us still, with living grace,
Homeward, whereto we haste.
4
See! open stands the heav'nly door,
Whence glory shines below,
To light the way He's gone before,
The coming bliss to show.
5
In patience then we tread the road -
Our faith and courage tried -
And trust the love which bears each load,
Our hearts from grief to hide.

J.N. Darby
