Each day we live we wonder why
Some days are filled with pain.
We strive to understand it all
And what there is to gain?
Our God reminds us faithfully
He loves us to the end.
Then one day He will tell us why
And we will comprehend…
Why trials and tribulations come
Throughout our whole lives long,
And why the birds, whose lives are short,
Still fill our days with song.
And why the flower, beautiful,
Comes but for a short time
And gives a glimpse of Heaven itself
Where life will be sublime.
And why the sun comes shining through
The clouds that bring the rain.
He promises there will be joy
To help us with our pain.
He gives us grace and peace and love
To guide us through each day –
He promises He’ll always show
Us how to make our way.
And that although sorrow will come
At times throughout our years,
That in the end, all will be well,
And smiles replace our tears.
And if we will but let Him in
When life is full of loss
He’ll lift us up into His arms
And carry us across
To better times, a better place
Where all those that we love
Await the day that we will dance
With them in Heaven above!
