Resignation – May 23 1916


Father if it be possible let this trial pass. 

My life Dear God save from bitter drought.

Dreg fraught -  Alas! All that life’s fight has won.

            Father in thy mercy strengthen me.

As in compassion at Gethsemanie.

You strengthened Thine own Son.

            Father in Thy wisdom what is best.

Bring on to this poor soul distressed.

I’ll murmur not but lisp this one

Sweet phrase: - Dear God – “Thy will be done”.
