The Promises of God

God has 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.
