|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.
|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.
|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.
|God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,|
Swift, easy travel, needing no guide;
Never a mountain, rocky and steep,
Never a river, turbid and deep.

Let us praise God together for His love and grace!
