the waiting-est time.

"thou art the lord who slept upon the pillow,
thou art the lord who soothed the furious sea,
what matters beating wind & tossing billow
if only we are in the boat with thee?

hold us quiet through the age-long minute
while thou art silent & the wind is shrill:
can the boat sink while thou, dear lord, are in it;
can the heart faint that waiteth on thy will?"
