Just Be Glad.
O, heart of mine, we shouldn't
Worry so. .
What we have missed of calm, we
Couldn't have you know.
What we have met of stormy pain,
And of sorrow's driving rain,
We can better meet again,
If it blow.
We have erred in that dark hour
We have known;
When the tears fell with the shower,
Were not shine and shower blent
As the gracious Master meant?
Let us temper our content
With His own.
For we know not every morrow
Can be sad;
So, forgetting all the sorrow
We have bad,
Let us fold away our tears.
And put by our foolish fears.
And through all the coming years
Just be glad.
