May wonder as the years go by,
Missing that little sister, why
This was the course God would pursue.
God leads His own through many a test
To teach His people that they must
Lean upon Him and learn to trust
The love whose way is always best.
If from known fields where they have been
A shepherd one day leads his flock
Among coarse thistle and dry rock
The fields beyond are rich and green.
And when you have an easier way
Remember still that God, in love,
Observes your pathway from above
Longing to see you trust and pray.
