Joy Cometh in the Morning

sunset & rainbows 027

Nights can be long and so lonely
Filled with such anguish and pain,
But joy cometh in the morning
Like sunshine after the rain.

Sometimes your heart can be aching
Filled with such grief and sorrow,
But joy cometh in the morning
Bringing hope for the morrow.

For God hath not always promised
Sunshine and blue skies above,
But joy cometh in the morning
Bringing God’s peace and His love.

They say it always seems darkest
In the hours before the dawn,
But joy cometh in the morning
Giving us faith to go on.

Thus we should trust Jesus always
Give him each sorrow and pain
For joy cometh in the morning
Like sunshine after the rain.
