Memorials of Theophilus Trinal, Student (1850).
I. Reasoning with God
By Thomas Toke Lynch (1818–1871)
 
    O HIDDEN Lord, most wise and rich,
      Whom oft I love, but often fear;
    Of light and dark, oft doubting which,
      Doth most upon Thy works appear:
    Why, if in Thee no darkness is,        5
      So deep a shade on human kind?
    If Thou be Father, tell me this,
      Why the sad heart, the troubled mind?
 
Then said a voice, “This truth within thee store,
And wait, believing, ere thou askest more:        10
Earth is a cloud which Time shall puff away,
Then shalt thou see the heaven and feel the day.”
