If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how "dark" the moment may be--
If I can remain calm & quiet
With all my world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God Loves Me
When everyone else seems to doubt me--
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That "darkness will fade with the morning"
And, that THIS WILL PASS AWAY, TOO--
Then nothing in life can defeat me,
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break "all the chains"
That are binding me tight in "THE DARKNESS"
And trying to fill me with fear--
For there is NO NIGHT WITHOUT DAWNING
And I know that "MY MORNING" is near...
