     And with strength from Him shall thy utter weakness
Life's task fulfil;

And that cloud itself, which now before thee
     Lies dark in view,
Shall with beams of light from the inner glory
     Be stricken through.

And like meadow mist through autumn's dawn
     Uprolling thin,
Its thickest folds when about thee drawn
     Let sunlight in.

Then of what is to be, and of what is done,
     Why queriest thou?
The past and the time to be are one,
     And both are now!
