It is folly to fight
Dear God's Plan
Dear God’s Plan
The current of life
runs e’er away
to the bosom of God's great ocean;
don't set your force
'gainst the river's course
and think you can alter its motion.
Don't waste a curse
on the universe -
remember, it lived long before you;
don't butt the storm
with your weaker form,
but bend and let it go o’er you.
The world will never
to suit your whims to the letter;
some things will go wrong
your whole life long;
the sooner you know it the better.
It’s folly to fight
with the Infinite
and go under at last in the wrestle -
the wiser one
shapes to Dear God's plan,
as water shapes into a vessel.
