In This Life


In this life, we need insight to follow the light
In this life, we must do just what is right
In this life, for many survival is a fight
In this life, for some comfort is out of sight
In this life, not all will find it pretty and bright
In this life, belief will bring us relief

Then live faithful with your hope
Just believe in the words of God
Follow not, those who are proud
As only in God's word
In this life, we'll ever learn how to cope
In this life, belief will bring us relief

In this life, everything has an end
In this life, our lives He just lend
However, there will come a time
According to His words
Hereafter, life will be happy and bright
In this life, only belief will bring us relief

In this life, we need His mercy and grace
In this life, let the Lord be your brace
In this life, however hard be your case
Make no waste, but with Him keep the pace
There is a God, who your tears He'll wipe
In this life, belief will bring us relief.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
