He keeps the key....

``Is there some problem in life to solve,
Some passage seeming full of mystery?
God knows, who brings the hidden things to light
He keeps the key.

Is there some door closed by the Father’s hand
Which widely opened you had hoped to see?
Trust God and wait -- for when He shuts the door
He keeps the key.

Is there some earnest prayer unanswered yet,
Or answered NOT as you had thought it would be?
God will make clear His purpose by-and-by
He keeps the key.

Have patience with your God, your patient God,
All wise, all knowing, no long tarried He,
And the door of all thy future life
He keeps the key.

Unfailing comfort, sweet and blessed rest,
To know of EVERY door He keeps the key
That He at last when just He sees ’tis best,
Will give it to THEE.
