God Hath Not Promised

The first time I read this years ago, it brought a tear to my eye. Occasionally, it still does.

God hath not promised
Skies always blue
Flower -strewn pathways
All our lives through
God hath not promised
Sun without rain
Joy without sorrow
Peace without pain
But God hath promised
Strength for the day
Rest for the labor
Light for the way
Grace for the trials
Help from above
Unfailing sympathy
Undying Love

I first read these words on a funeral brochure for my aunt MANY years ago and they have stayed with me since. They are so true! They bring a tear to my eyes, also. So simple, yet so meaningful.
