DAILY POEM

"HAST THOU A CLOUD?

"Something that is dark and full of dread;
"A messenger of tempest overhead?

"A something that is darkening in the sky;
"A something growing darker bye and bye;

"A something that thou fear'st will burst at last;
"A cloud that doth a deep, long shadow cast?

"GOD COMETH IN THAT CLOUD!



"HAST THOU A CLOUD?

"It is Jehovah's triumph car: in this
"He rideth to thee, o're the wide abyss.

"It is the robe in which He wraps His form;
"For He doth gird Him with the flashing storm.

"It is the veil in which He hides the light
"Of His fair face, too dazzling for thy sight.

"GOD COMETH IN THAT CLOUD!



"HAST THOU A CLOUD?

"A trial that is terrible to thee?
"A black temptation threatening to see?

"A loss of some dear one long thine own?
"A mist, a veiling, bringing the unknown?

"A mystery that unsubstantial seems:
"A cloud between thee and the sun's bright beams?

"GOD COMETH IN THAT CLOUD!



"HAS THOU A CLOUD?

"A sickness -- weak old age -- distress and death?
"These clouds will scatter at thy last faint breath.

"Fear not the clouds that hover o're thy barque,
"Making the harbour's entrance dire and dark;

"The cloud of death, though misty, chill and cold,
"Will yet grow radiant with a fringe of gold!

"GOD cometh in that cloud!"
