And Eliezer, baffled silent, stood
As she fulfilled his every wish and dream
And so much more. He knew what this would mean.
He saw from there that all God does is good.

And so he waited patient as he could,
So in the proper time he true could deem
That God in truth his path had planned and seen,
The way his master said and prayed he would.

And Rivkah finished her kindness with a smile,
And Jewish destiny smiled back all the while.
