Blessed is he whose faith is not offended,

When all around his way

The power of God is working out deliverance for others day by day;

Blessed are you, O child of God, who does suffer,

And cannot understand

The reason for your pain, yet will gladly leave

Your life in His blessed hand.

Yes, blessed are you whose faith is “not offended”

By trials unexplained,

By mysteries unsolved, past understanding,

Until the goal is gained.

Excerpts from a poem by Freda Hanbury Allen
