Invincible Patience Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
Plan not, nor scheme,--but calmly wait;
His choice is best.
While blind and erring is thy sight,
His wisdom sees and judges right,
So trust and rest.

To bear My searching eye
Unshrinking, then may come the time
Thy brother to decry.
