L.A. Bennett

NOT a friend but Jesus

Fully understands:

All the secret lieth

In His holy hands.


Not a heart that beateth

Beateth wholly true;

He alone who made us,

Reads us through and through.


Not an eye around us

Reads the tale aright:

But in Him no darkness

Who is Light of light.


Not a hand uplifted

For our sorest need,

But His “I am with thee”

Maketh blest indeed.
