Thought for the Summer Season
What God Hath Promised

Annie Johnson Flint

God hath not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathway
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.
