Do Not Despair

Do not despair
Though grief and care
May bleed our laughter dry
And mortal pain
May seek to drain
The well-spring in our eye

Do not give up
Though pleasure’s cup
Is cracked or sadly scarred
There is an ear
Bent close to hear
The groaning of the heart

Do not dismay
A fairer day
Awaits beyond the vale
As step by step
He lifts us up
In arms that never fail

 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isa. 41:10
