Most times I can disguise the pain
But there are days I truly fail
My efforts are too much a strain
And strength can be of small avail !
To help myself I keep in stride
I’m busy with a batch of things
My many hours are occupied
In silliness and smatterings !
Sometimes I find the pain subsides
When e’er I get my faith involved
God’s peace and calm with me abides
And by His grace my pain’s dissolved !
