1 Not so in haste, my heart!
Have faith in God, and wait;
although he linger long,
he never comes too late.

2 He never cometh late;
he knoweth what is best;
vex not thyself in vain;
until he cometh, rest.

3 Until he cometh, rest,
nor grudge the hours that roll;
the feet that wait for God
are soonest at the goal.

4 Are soonest at the goal
that is not gained with speed;
then hold thee still, my heart,
for I shall wait his lead.
