I met God in the storm
Where He found me all forlorn;
And He put His arm around me,
And I thank Him for the storm.
I met God in the dark,
Where I wandered stiff and stark;
And He caught my hand to guide me.
And I thank Him for the dark.
I met God in defeat,
Where He followed my retreat,
With a vision of new conquest;
Now I´m glad of the defeat.
I met God by the grave,
Where He braced me to be brave,
But I failed and then He caught me;
Yes, I thank Him for that grave.
I shall meet God,
When the night overwhelms my flickering light;
Then He´ll lead me to the morning,
Far away from cloud and storming,
Where, I´ll praise Him for the night.
-Bishop Ralph Cushman
