Life is Good

Life is good
When you look for the good,
Seeking the beauty and light,
Finding a way
To brighten the day,
Trying to do what is right.

The joy life can bring
Will make your heart sing
When life is pleasant and sweet,
But when problems arise,
Take you by surprise,
They may knock you off your feet.

Life is still good
If only you could
Look past the sorrow and pain,
Lifting your eyes
As you realize
How much there is to gain.

Through the cloud of tears
As your vision clears
There is beauty for you to find,
Like the sun on your face
Feel the touch of God’s grace,
Let God’s love fill your soul and mind.
