by Patience Strong
When the soul is plunged into the depths of dark despair -
When the heart is heavy with its load of human care -
When it seems that we shall never see the light again -
Blinded by our sorrows, by the tear-drops and the pain ...
That's the time when unseen hands reach down to take our own -
Loved ones press around us, though we think we stand alone -
Angel wings enfold us safe from every hurt and harm -
Something seems to come to us and make us strong and calm...
Comfort steals upon the heart, we know not how or why -
Suddenly the light comes flooding o'er the darkened sky -
"God shall wipe away all tears" -
His promise shall remain -
And strengthened, healed and comforted -
We face the world again.
