This poem was written by Jennie Adams, a nurse and Baptist missionary to the Phillipines.  At the Green Lake Conference Center there is a trail through the woods along which there is a series of such signs with the entire poem she had written. At the end of that path sits Hopevale Cathedral in the Glen, a replica of the chapel where Jennie worshiped as a refuge at Paney in the Phillipines. In December 1943, she and ten other missionaries were martyred by the Japanese.
Wow, I would love to write up this whole story for you here, but please check out this website, for the whole story. Some day, when I have time (like that will happen any time soon), I would like to learn more about this courageous woman and those who were with her that day.
