The Border Land
"And now men see not that bright light which is in the clouds" (Job 37:21)

We are living in the border land,
You and I;
Where the shadows lengthen for a while,
And the sun hath hid his noonday smile,
While soft twilight doth the hours beguile.

Yet at evening time it shall be light!
You and I;
Have that promise from the far-off land,
Where are gathered the ransomed band,
Who in robes of white resplendent stand.

While we, passing through the border land
You and I;
Shall have left all shadows behind,
We shall wonder that we were so blind,
While our clouds were ever silver-lined.
