Being cast like a weed on the bewildering stream!

(John MacDuff, "Ripples in the Twilight" 1885)

WHAT! Resign the reins of universal empire . . .
  to blind fate!
  to accident!
  to destiny!
  to chance!

Who could endure the thought of being cast like a weed on the bewildering stream, in its tortuous course, at the mercy of every current!

Oh! there is a God who reigns on high, "All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing. And He does according to His will in the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth, and none can stay His hand or say to Him: What are You doing?" Daniel 4:35

"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad!" Psalm 97:1

"Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!" Revelation 19:6
