This Too Shall Pass

 

 

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how "dark" the moment may be --
If I can remain calm and quiet
With all my world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me --
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That "darkness will fade
With the morning"
And that THIS WILL PASS AWAY, TOO --
Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break
"all the chains"
That are binding me tight
In "THE DARKNESS"
And trying to fill me with fear --
For there is NO NIGHT WITHOUT DAWNING
And I know that "MY MORNING" is near.
