A Prayer in Darkness

Written by: Chesterton, Gilbert K.    Posted on: 02/22/2006

Category: Pro Life

This much, O heaven[INVALID]if I should brood or rave,
 ; Pity me not; but let the world be fed,
 ; Yea, in my madness if I strike me dead,
Heed you the grass that grows upon my grave.

If I dare snarl between this sun and sod,
 ; Whimper and clamour, give me grace to own,
 ; In sun and rain and fruit in season shown,
The shining silence of the scorn of God.

Thank God the stars are set beyond my power,
 ; If I must travail in a night of wrath,
 ; Thank God my tears will never vex a moth,
Nor any curse of mine cut down a flower.

Men say the sun was darkened: yet I had
 ; Thought it beat brightly, even on[INVALID]Calvary:
 ; And He that hung upon the Torturing Tree
Heard all the crickets singing, and was glad.
