When nought is seen but that by grace first given.
What gain is full if full is less than all He gave?
When first fruits end comes winter long and barren.
What fruits will bear if summer comes again?
Lay now the seeds which prayer will often water.
Dark night of hope and unseen growth to bear.
By faith the spring will show its hand and living hope.
Made certain by obedience, fruits to bear again.
