Sacrifice

So, heart, what thinkest thou

It's not thy right to question now

Though thou art torn, thou silent be

On the secret twixt thee and me

.

Secret thou dare not to slip

Guard thy tongue and guard thy lip

Sore and troubled in thy soul

Know thou not God makest whole?

.

Cherished thing within thy breast

Keep the fear and hurt suppressed

Not a shadow of thy pain

Should darken where thou seekest gain

.

T'were delight, t'were desire

Now that fuels thy inward fire

The thing thou lovest now might be

That which givest pain to thee

.

Preciousness comes with a cost

And treasure's known by what is lost

The darker shadows show the light

There is no dawn without the night

.

God knoweth. Comfort taketh thus

He puttest on thee what He must

He knows thy limits and thy scope

And never burdens without hope.

.

Cast all upon Him. Be thou sure

He'll carry all thy hurt and more

He guardest well the weakest frame

And knows the soul that calls His name

.
