James J. Metcalfe

In trial and adversity
Let not your faith grow dim,
But say a fervent prayer to God
And keep your trust in Him.

Let hope not wither on the vine
Of sorrow and despair,
Remember God knows everything
And He is everywhere.

However dark the day may seem
Or frightening the night,
All troubles fade and disappear
And life turns out all right.

Provided you maintain your faith
And do not yield to fear
The while you pray for courage with
A heart that is sincere.

Resign yourself most humbly now
To do God's holy will
And He will surely bless you and
Your least request fulfill.
