Whatever Is — Is Best

A great Christian poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox which discusses as we get older we realize that God has a plan and when we learn to trust that plan life becomes easier.



Whatever Is — Is Best
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox


Know as my life grows older
And mine eyes have clearer sight —
That under each rank wrong, somewhere
There lies the root of Right;
That each sorrow has its purpose,
By the sorrowing oft unguessed,
But as sure as the sun brings morning,
Whatever is — is best.

I know that each sinful action
As sure as the night brings shade,
Is somewhere, some time punished,
Tho' the hour be long delayed.
I know that the soul is aided
Sometimes by the heart's unrest,
And to grow means often to suffer —
But whatever is — is best.

I know there are no errors
In the great Eternal plan,
And all things work together
For the final good of man.
And I know when my soul speeds onward
In its grand Eternal quest,
I shall say as I look back earthward
Whatever is — is best.
