Stan’s Corner, Monday, July 25

God hath not promise

Skies always blue,

Flower-strewn pathways

All our lives thro’;

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,

Unfailing sympathy,

Undying love.
