A Prayer: 1. 3. O Father, help me understand, Forgive the surging doubts that rise And know the reason why Within my aching heart, The boy that Thou dids't give to me, And take the dimness from mine eyes, So early had to die; Let darkness all depart. Why one whose life had been so pure, Let light and knowledge come to me Who never knew deceit, From heaven, Thy home on high, Should droop and wither like a flower O help me put my trust in Thee: Crushed under ruthless feet. O Father, tell me, why. 2. 4. O Father, help me understand Perhaps I sin in asking this, Thy purposes Divine, More faith should show in Thee; In letting death, with ruthless hand But, O I miss his loving kiss, Tear his dear heart from mine. He was so dear to me. O let me see the veil beyond, Just let me know that I sometime Where dwells his spirit pure, Shall find him, once again, And know he's happy where he's gone; And clasp again his form to mine: O let me feel secure. I ask, in Jesus' name. The Answer: 5. 7. Grieve not, my son for time shall be, Then grieve not for the one that's gone, When death shall be no more. Nor let your heart despair; Thy loved one I'll return to thee, For God in wisdom called your son, To cherish evermore. To work for Him up there; 'Twas in the plan that man should die, The prison gates to open wide And slumber in the grave, For those who died in sin, But rise again, as even I, And through repentance them to guide For this my life I gave. Again to worship Him. 6. 8. For mortal life is but a part Let this then be your answer, why, Of God's eternity, And let your heart rejoice, In which the souls of men embark For unto God they do not die, To find felicity. Who answer to His voice; What men call death is but a step But walk with Him in realms of love, From low to higher plane, Where all the righteous be. And all who in the dust have slept, Be comforted, for there above, Through me shall live again. Thy boy will welcome thee.

A Quote by Ray Stannard Baker on ability, acceptance, beginning, blindness, body, confidence, dawn, destiny, disease, doctors, effort, failure, fear, kindness, mind, nature, reason, rest, reward, security, struggle, suffering, time, tranquility, and yiel

Suddenly it came to me, as a kind of new light, that I would no longer resist and struggle; I would accept the unavoidable. If it was in the nature of my disease, what else that was wise could I do? At first the torment, ravaging unrestrained, seemed even worse than before. It consumed me utterly. But I had a glimmering sense that I was at least playing a voluntary part in my own destiny; that, somehow, I was substituting reason for blind, involuntary, fear-driven resistance. This effort I continued through the greater part of one terrible night, failing often, unable to yield completely, driven by red-hot scourges into the old resistances. At dawn, in spite of the best medication the doctors knew, I was exhausted, but I began to feel that I was on the way toward what might be, for me, a new method. This I practiced faithfully and with increasing confidence for some time. I no longer resisted the inevitable! I am not sure that there was a great decrease in the actual physical suffering; I do know that the period of the paroxysm was reduced, since resistance seemed merely to prolong it. But the great reward was in the mind: in my own ability to command myself in the face of such a catastrophe; to preserve my equanimity; to rest securely upon reason when panic might so easily overwhelm me. I had moments in the midst of such paroxysms during the earlier nights when I was so secure in mind, so tranquil, that I felt it did not much matter what happened to my body. Nothing could touch me.

A Quote by Randy Read on death, failure, life, safety, security, and success

Others attempt to live cautiously in the safety of established patterns. They do not feel fulfilled, yet they have found a formula not of success (whatever that is), but of avoiding failure. This is the living death - when security becomes the overwhelming consideration.

A Quote by R. Shannon on ideas, individuality, jobs, security, and thinking

Those who devise better methods of utilizing manpower, tools, machinery, materials and facilities are making real contributions toward our national security. Today, these ideas are a form of insurance for our national security; tomorrow, this same progressive thinking is insurance for our individual security-it is, in effect, job insurance.

A Quote by Paul H. Dunn on church, day, experience, faith, friendship, good, happiness, horses, kindness, life, mind, needs, optimism, people, problems, security, sermons, thought, and understanding

I have been uplifted today and the previous days by the optimistic sermons of those who have preceded me. I am grateful for a happy church, a church that brings security and understanding and faith in the lives of its people. This is a church that is not only optimistic but also has a firm foundation. It has been reiterated many times already. The optimism of this conference brought to my mind the little experience of two Vermont farmers. It seems that in Vermont we get a great deal of rain, and the hills are green as a result. One day a farmer was walking down a back road, and it was very muddy, and suddenly he came upon a large puddle, and in the middle of the puddle he saw a straw hat. He thought he recognized it. He tiptoed over and lifted it up, and lo and behold under it was his friend Zeb, and he was right up to his neck in the mud. He said, "Zeb, it looks like you have a problem. Do you need some help?" Zeb said, "No thanks, Zeke, I'll be all right. I have got a good horse under me." Well, I have felt that kind of optimism throughout this conference. Spiritually speaking, we have some great horses under us, and I am grateful for that kind of faith and testimony.

A Quote by Paul Garrett on beginning, business, defeat, employees, good, intention, managers, and security

Unless a business can stay in the black over the long term, averaging the bad years with good, it cannot sustain itself. A manager may have laudable social intentions of providing security for his employees, better products at lower prices for his customers. But if he cannot keep the business going in realizing these intentions he is defeated before he begins.

A Quote by Norman Cousins on conflict, conscience, generations, humanity, nations, needs, peace, privacy, prosperity, and security

If there is a conflict between the security of the sovereign state and the security of the human commonwealth, the human commonwealth comes first. If there is a conflict between the well-being of the nation and the well-being of humanity, the well-being of humanity comes first. If there is a conflict between the needs of this generation and the needs of all later generations, the needs of the later generations come first. If there is a conflict between public edict and private conscience, private conscience comes first. If there is a conflict between the easy drift of prosperity and the ordeal of peace, the ordeal of peace comes first.

A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on adversity, awards, greatness, nobility, security, soul, time, and words

The prince who relies upon their words, without having otherwise provided for his security, is ruined; for friendships that are won by awards, and not by greatness and nobility of soul, although deserved, yet are not real, and cannot be depended upon in time of adversity.
