Of all the joys I’ve ever known
The ones I treasure as my own
Are those that I have always spent
Enclosed under God’s earthly tent !
Days when I’m sure I can’t go on
Because the pain is never gone
It tries my patience and my faith
But love of God keeps my heart safe.
And if I keep believing thus
Another day is one more plus
I must have hope to stir my soul
And make tomorrow my next goal !
