Mary Gardiner Brainard. (1837–1905)
 
 
1
    I see not a step before me as I tread on another year;
But I ’ve left the Past in God’s keeping,—the Future
      His mercy shall clear;
And what looks dark in the distance may brighten as I draw near.
          Not knowing.
2
    I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light.
          Not knowing.
3
    That which we look on with unselfish love
And true humility is surely ours,
Even as a lake looks at the stars above
And makes within itself a heaven of stars.
          Ownership.
