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.
