On God You Can Rely

Sunshine returns when the clouds roll away,
Spring comes once winter is through,
After the night comes the following day,
After showers a rainbow comes into view.

On the beauty of nature we can rely
As surely as God creates birds to fly.

Again joy returns following sorrow,
Healing can come after suffering pain,
At the day’s end we have hope for tomorrow,
And enjoy blooming flowers after the rain.

On God’s comfort and blessings we can rely
As surely as there is a sun in the sky.

Excerpt from Abundant Comfort and Grace
