The beautiful promises of God
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.
God hath not promised we shall not know,
Toil and temptation, trouble and woe.
He hath not told us we shall not bear,
many a burden many a care.
But God hath promised,
Strength for the day,
Rest for the laborer,
Light for the way.
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
These beautiful words were not created by me. I symply found the poem written somewhere just like you see it here, and rewrote it. Author unknown.
