What God Hath Promised

God hath not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives through.
God hath not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without pain.

But God hath promised,
Strength for the day,
Rest for the labor,
Light for the way.
Grace for the trials
Help from above, Unfailing sympathy,
Undying love.

Life has its challenges, ups and downs, twists and turns.  There is so much suffering, pain, and injustice in the world, but there are many blessings and so much beauty too.  The way you see it is up to you.
