He sendeth sun, he sendeth shower,-Alike they’re needful to the flower;And joys and tears alike are sentTo give the soul fit nourishment.As comes to me or cloud or sun,Father! thy will, not mine, be done.
"He sendeth Sun, he sendeth Shower", reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 282; and in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
