    Poem: "The Weaver," anonymous, as published in
    Sourcebook of Poetry by Al Bryant, 1968 
    Music by: Cathy Neff

    My life is but a weaving
    Between the Lord and me;
    I cannot choose the colors
    He worketh steadily.

    Oft-times He weaveth sorrow
    And I in foolish pride,
    Forget that He seeth the upper,
    And I the under side.

    Not til the loom is silent
    And the shuttles cease to fly,
    Shall God unroll the canvas
    And explain the reason why,

    The dark threads are as needful
    In the Weaver's skillful hand,
    As the threads of gold and silver
    In the pattern He has planned.
