Into the day that reveals me,
White as the lamp from every side
I blame the Powers that I imagine
For the defeat that claims my very being.
In the caring  arms of the whole plan
      I have winced and cried aloud.
Amid the triumphs of destiny
      My head is dizzy and bowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms a life I cannot control,
And my attempts through the years
Find me inadequate and full of doubt.
It greatly matters how wide the opening,
      How detailed the responsibilities the path,
I need not change my circumstance,
      A Higher Power controls my will, my life.
