Give to the wind thy fears

Give to the wind thy fears
hope and be undismayed
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears,
Leave to His sovereign sway
To choose and to command;
Then shalt thou, wandering, own His way.
Far, far above thy thought,
His counsel shall appear
When fully He the work hath wrought
Through waves and clouds and storms,
He gently clears the way;

Wait thou His time; so shall this night
Soon end in joyous day.

~ God Will Lift Up Your Head, Paul Gerhardt, mid 17th century

Hard at work on my comprehensive exam, although we took some time today for church, friends, and swimming in the rain! Feeling pensive. Always do when the winds of change are blowing.
