It is from Longellow Chatelaine. "Though the mills of God grind slowly, they grind exceeding small.
Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all"

Thank you for a proper translation, a bit more elaborate than the Dutch one, but says it all ... whilst we're waiting for justice.
