S.M.

1
Yes, Joseph must be sold,
A type of Christ, his Lord;
But God was with him, we are told,
And kept him by His word.

2
How wondrous are the ways
Of providence on earth!
The darkest and the saddest days
Are often turned to mirth.

3
One day in prison seen,
Another on the throne;
Yet every day the Lord has been
The same toward His own.
