FOREVER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We sigh for human love, from which
Last Line: And be our help forever!
Subject(s): God; Love

We sigh for human love, from which
A whim or chance shall sever,
And leave unsought the love of God,
Though God's love lasts forever.

We seek earth's peace in things that pass
Like foam upon the river,
While, steadfast as the stars on high.
God's peace abides forever.

Man's help, for which we yearn, gives way,
As trees in storm-winds quiver,
But, mightier than all human need,
God's help remains forever.

Turn unto Thee our wavering hearts,
O Thou who failest never;
Give us Thy love and Thy great peace,
And be our Help forever!
