Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Up the Downside of Life


God never said it would be easy
Just forgiven

God never promised joy and happiness
Just comfort and compassion

And all those trials and all those tragedies
Are as sure as sunrise, sunset

There are shadows in the valley of death
I...I fear alone

But when I becomes a 'we'
Then we fear not any evil
