John Foley, SJ
Patience, people, till the Lord is come.
See the farmer await the yield of the soil,
He watches it in winter and in spring rain.
You have seen the purpose of the Lord.
You know His compassion and His mercy.
Steady your hearts, for the Lord is close at hand.
And do no grumble, one against the other.
Patience, people, for the Lord is coming.
