I stood with God on the edge of the world,
and my hand was in His hand.
I looked down the road of the past,
as it stretched away in the dim distance,
till it was shrouded in the mists of time.
And I knew it had no beginning,
and a little chill wind of fear blew about my head.
God asked, “Are you afraid?”
And I said, “Yes, because I cannot understand how there
can be no beginning.”
So God said, “Let us turn and face the other way.”
And I looked into glory,
and my heart rejoiced with joy unspeakable.
And then my mind went ahead, a billion, billion years,
and I knew there would be no end,
and again that little chill wind of fear began to blow.
And God asked me again, “Are you afraid?”
And I answered, “A little, because I cannot
understand how there can be no end.”
So God asked me tenderly,
“Are you afraid now, today, with your hand in Mine?”
And I looked up at Him and smiled and replied,
“O my Father, No!”
And God said,
“Every day in eternity will be today.”
