The Kneeling Camel



The camel, at the close of day
Kneels down upon the sandy plain
To have his burden lifted off
And rest to gain

My soul, thou too shouldst to thy knees
When the daylight draweth to a close
And let thy Master lift thy load
And grant repose

Else how canst thou tomorrow meet
With all tomorrow's work to do
If thou thy burden all the night
Dost carry through

The camel kneels at break of day
To have his guide replace his load
Then rises up again to take
The desert road

Sou thou shouldst kneel at morning's dawn
That God may give thee daily care
Assured that He no load too great
Will make thee bear
