  Patience Of Hope  

 

The flowers that bloom in sun and shade
    And glitter in the dew,
        The flowers must fade.
The birds that build their nest and sing
    When lovely spring is new,
        Must soon take wing.

The sun that rises in his strength
    To wake and warm the world,
        Must set at length.
The sea that overflows the shore
    With billows frothed and curled,
        Must ebb once more.

All come and go, all wax and wane,
    O Lord, save only Thou
        Who dost remain
The Same to all eternity.
    All things which fail us now
        We trust to Thee.

       - Christina G. Rossetti
