The Gate Of The Year

‘God Knows'

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.
And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.

Anniebach I am new to this site, but I had to reply because I absolutely love this . It was written by Minnie Louise Haskins and I think it was read on the rado by king George XI at some time during the war.

I have it on a poster and I love it - says it all really.

BTW I am Welsh too - South Wales
