"God hath not promised skies always blue
flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;

God hath not promised sun with 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."
