The Two Sufficients





Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34
...My grace is sufficient for thee... 2 Corinthians 12:9

Evil shall pass with the day that brought it,
As the sea is stayed by the barrier land;
When the Giver of good shall say, "No farther,"
And bid the foeman restrain his hand;
But the grace of the Lord outstays the evil,
Outlasts the darkness, outruns the morn,
Outwatches the stars in their nightly vigil;
And the foe that returns with the day reborn,
As he left it unwearied, shall find it unworn.
