A POEM……Dorothea Day

Out of the light that dazzles me,
Bright as the sun from pole to pole
   I thank the God I know to be
For Christ is the conqueror of my soul
Since His the sway of circumstance
   I would not wince nor cry aloud
Under the rule which men call chance
   My head with joy is humbly bowed
Beyond this place of sin and tears
That life with Him!  And His the aid,
   Despite the menace of the years,
Keep, and shall keep me, unafraid
I have no fear, though strait the gate,
He cleared my punishment from the scroll
   Christ is the master of my fate
   Christ is the master of my soul
