“Life’s Tapestry,” Ensign, Sept. 1999, 58

Life’s Tapestry

We hold life’s tapestry within our hands,

Each trying to discern its weave and hue;

With faith we reach for premortal strands

And interlace the old with cords of new.

God has pulled the warp threads strong and tight

To help our unskilled fingers feel the way;

He lets us choose the patterns that are right

And guides the shuttle as we work each day.

He’ll walk beside us as design takes form

On this mortal loom, and He’ll inspire

The colors that endure both sun and storm

And keep their beauty through last-day fire.

These threads we interweave by earthly sight

Will pick up glory in eternal light.
