He strained my faith —
Did he find it supple?
Shook my strong trust —
Did it then — yield?

Hurled my belief —
But — did he shatter — it?
Racked — with suspense —
Not a nerve failed!

Wrung me — with Anguish —
But I never doubted him —
'Tho' for what wrong
He did never say —

Stabbed — while I sued
His sweet forgiveness —
Jesus — it's your little "John"!
Don't you know — me?
