Not till the loom is silent.....

Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttle cease to fly
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why
The dark threads are as needful
In the weavers skilful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern he has planned

This verse hung on my bedroom wall as a child. At about 9 years old my mother explained its meaning. It was not much comfort to me a year later, when my father died,though it has been of some help to explain other sad deaths and events.
In our version the word "reveal" was used instead of "explain".
