To all who are sick and weary
Who feel you must ‘lie up',
My word to you is lie on your back,
For then you must 'look up'.
You could of course lie on your face
Looking at dull, grey ground,
Or lie on your side, whichever you like,
Looking at things around.
But it's better far to lie on your back,
Relax and be quite still;
For as you lie down you must 'look up'
And so fulfill His will.—F. H. Oakley
(Ps. 4. 4; 5. 3; Luke 21. 28)
