The Cloudless Life

classic poetry header
*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


The dove let loose in Eastern skies,
When hasting fondly home,
Stoops not to earth her wing, nor flies
Where idle warblers roam;
But high she soars through air and light
In realms of cloudless day,
Where nothing earthly stays her flight,
Nor clouds bedim her way.

So grant me. Lord, from every cloud
And strife of passion free,
Aloft through virtue’s purer air
To hold my course to Thee;
No cloud to dim, no clog to stay
My soul, as home she springs,
Thy sunshine on her glorious way,
Thy freedom in her wings.
