"This poem puts everything in perspective"

I read this poem in one of my devotionals this morning.  Unfortunately, it did not give the poet's name.  Maybe someone out there is familiar with it.....

"When statesmen have had their last parley
And despots have made their last threat;
When prophets are dumb with misgiving
And forces of conflict are set;
When factions misleading and treacherous
Bring chaos where order prevailed;
When freedom long cherished is vanquished
And leaders long trusted have failed;
When God and His Word are derided
And men call it useless to pray;
Remember that God is still sovereign
And HE has the last word to say."
