IN THE SHADOW
“And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind.” —(1 Kings, XIX, 11.)
Unloosed from man’s slight hands the country o’er,
Shatt’ring his habitations, laying low
The mightiest structures of his skill and power;--
When on the mansion and the humble cot
Alike the cyclone spends its sudden wrath;
When through the peaceful valley sweeps the flood--
Each leaving death and terror in its path;
When in the darkest shadow thou art cast,
Remember then thy refuge — ‘tis a Rock will last!
O “Rock of Ages,” proof ‘gainst storm and flood,
Trust we in Thee and kiss the chast’ning rod!
Turn we to Thee in simple faith and say,
There is no rock, no refuge, save our God!
April 11, 1913 T. H. R.
