“At Sunrise”

Away from laughter, away from the crowd,
In a shelter that remains to be seen —
Without a single noise, without a sound,
My soul is settled; I have peace within.

Amidst the stillness of early morning
With nothing but the birds’ singing to hear,
I opened His word, sincerely hoping
To know more of God and to know Him near.

With a fluttering heart, His word I read:
“The one whom the Lord loves, He disciplines.”
Thus, though with tear-stained face, my soul is fed.
With this I’m settled. I have peace within.
