The Life

I lay last night and knew not why I was sad.     “‘Tis well with God,” I said, “and he is the truth;

     Let that content me.”β€”’Tis not strength, nor youth,

     Nor buoyant health, nor a heart merry-mad,

     That makes the fact of things wherein men live:

     He is the life, and doth my life outgive;

     In him there is no gloom, but all is solemn-glad.
 – George MacDonald
