“If We Evermind”

If We Evermind
"If We Evermind"

Whether it be two roads ‎
Or a sea to travel
Uncharted, we have no reason
To fear or need to quake
Because He has not left us
Empty or weak, but rich with truth.‎
And if we heed, we will not be blind;‎
If indeed we harken - if we evermind.‎

When comes a day that darkness shrouds
Or plenty falls away to famine,‎
We need not say that we’re abandoned
For all the way He stands, and patiently,‎
Tenderly He waits for us to follow
The pin-prick daylight He spreads
Before our feet. May we trusting walk the line
Betwixt the dangers on either side. May we evermind.‎

The same on morning splendor,‎
When feasting on goodness fattens
Our minds, and lazing softens our faith,‎
May we trusting turn our glass
And reckon Him. Not mistaking the blessing ‎
From His hand for working of our own,‎
We praising stand and thank in kind
For gifting us with life and truth to evermind.‎

There is no trace of human wisdom to compare
With a single phrase of His light. He stands
Above and sways the nations,‎
He speaks and worlds obey His smallest whim.‎
He willingly explains in words so clear – ‎
So humanly plain – that we can meet each challenge. ‎
We can trust His way and tread sublime
For He creates the truth that we must evermind. ‎

And when we keep His words before our eye
And turn our feet toward His Book,‎
His perfect wisdom metes to us in measure
Exactly what we need. There is no want,‎
But always greets us on the morn
Bounteous mercy and grace and direction
Perfect to speed us toward His chosen time;‎
If we follow, if we listen, learn, and evermind. ‎
