FAITH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: There is no unbelief
Last Line: God knowth why.
Alternate Author Name(s): Bulwer, Edward; Lytton Of Knebworth, 1st Baron; Lytton, Edward George Earle Bulwer, Lord
Subject(s): Religion; Theology

There is no unbelief;
Whoever plants a seed beneath the sod
And waits to see it push away the clod,
He trusts in God.

Whoever says when clouds are in the sky,
"Be patient, heart; light breaketh by-and-by,"
Trusts the Most High.

Whoever sees, 'neath winter's field of snow,
The silent harvest of the future grow,
God's power must know.

Whoever lies down on his couch to sleep,
Content to lock each sense in slumber deep,
Knows God will keep.

Whoever says, "Tomorrow," "The Unknown,"
"The Future," trusts that power alone
He dares disown.

There is no unbelief;
An day by day and night, unconsciously,
The heart lies by that faith the lips deny,
God knowth why.
