Hitherto


I can tell the story of each stone
The stones that have been without a smile
The stones that seemed impossible to achieve
Each stone of my life, a chapter

I can pick each one and fiddle with my fingers
As I do that, every event plays a song
Every tune with its tear
But through it all there has been you

I carefully arrange each in order of events
I can see the one of ‘complete praise’
I can see the one of ‘almost letting go’
But you had my back through it all

Looking at each stone in greater detail
With heart felt praise
I can say Hitherto hath The Lord helped me
Hitherto hath The Lord been with me
Hitherto hath The Lord been my strength.

1 Samuel 7:12
