C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
The Afternoon
By Sir Edwin Arnold (1832–1904)
 
  
From ‘Pearls of the Faith’
  
He is sufficient, and He makes suffice;
Praise thus again thy Lord, mighty and wise.

GOD is enough! thou, who in hope and fear
  Toilest through desert-sands of life, sore tried,
Climb trustful over death’s black ridge, for near
  The bright wells shine: thou wilt be satisfied.
 
God doth suffice! O thou, the patient one,        5
  Who puttest faith in Him, and none beside,
Bear yet thy load; under the setting sun
  The glad tents gleam: thou wilt be satisfied.
 
By God’s gold Afternoon! peace ye shall have:
  Man is in loss except he live aright,        10
And help his fellow to be firm and brave,
  Faithful and patient: then the restful night!
 
    Al Mughni! best Rewarder! we
    Endure; putting our trust in Thee.
