My life is but a weaving
Between my god and me;
I do not choose the colors
He works steadily.
Sometimes He weaves sorrow
And I, in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the upper,
And I the under side.
Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
in the Weaver’s skillful hand,
As the thread of gold and silver
In the patter He has planned.
Grant Colfax Tullar
American Hymnist, 1869-1950
FOR THOSE I LOVE AND THOSE WHO LOVED ME
When I’m gone release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears.
be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
So bless the memories with your heart
It’s only for a while that we must part.
I won’t be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come.
though you can’t see me or touch me, I’ll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear
All of my love around you soft and dear.
And then, when you must come this way alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and welcome you home.
