Edgard Degas

I shall utter this:
I will trust You God
Because I can abide
Safely in You always.

I see shadows overcome
By light across the Jordan –
Final river, where Your throne,
Beautiful throne is in Your temple.

I hear the angelic murmur
Of Your confident voice
Bringing trust and love
With surety in my darkness.

…and I know that the train
Of Your robe
fills the temple
With Glory.
