In Praise Of……


smile emoticon kolobok

When Winter winds drive freezing rain
And all around seems bleak,
When hope of sunshine proves in vain
And help a forlorn squeak –
Let Faith then surely speak!

When darker days of suffering loom
And Pain is at her peak,
When desperation foretells gloom
And threaten havoc wreak –
Let Faith then surely speak!

When Light begins to fade away
And Life morphs to a leak,
When Thoughts advent to go astray
And Soul a haven seek –
May Faith then always speak!

  5. Great words Elliot. To many it explains the lack of hope in our politicians – the future looks bleak. Great image.

  7. As usual you gave me something to think about. Hebrews Chapter 11 is often referred to as the “faith chapter” and the title is very appropriate. A large number of the verses (15) start with “By faith” and faith is the key ingredient in our search for salvation.
