Here you will find the Poem Trust in God of poet Charles Harpur

Trust in God

Deep trust in God?for that I still have sought 
 Through all the grim doubts that bemock the soul, 
When in the amazement of far-reaching throught, 
 We list the labourings that for ever roll 
Like dubious thunders through those clouded regions 
 Where night and destiny the counsels keep 
Of Time developing his shadowy legions. 
And when I ve stood upon some hazardous steep 
 Of speculation?heaving up its bare 
 And rugged ridge high in the nebulous air 
Of endless change, and thence tremendously 
 Throwing its shadow, like a blind man?s stare, 
Out through the dread unknown?deep trust in Thee, 
O God! Hath likewise been my refuge there.
