COMFORT 

COMFORT 

Oh, deem not they are blest alone
Whose lives a peaceful tenor keep;
The power who pities man, has shown
A blessing for the eyes that weep.

The light of smile shelf fill again
The lids that overflow with tears;
And weary hours of woe and pain
Are promises of happier years.

There is a day of sunny rest
For every dark and troubled night;
And grief may bide an evening guest,
But joy shall come with early light.

And thou, who, o’er thy friend’s low bier,
Dost shed the bitch her drops like rain,
Hope that a brighter, happier sphere
Will give him to thy arms again.

For God hath marked each sorrowing day
And numbered every secret tear,
And Heaven’s long age of bliss shall pay
For all His children suffer here.

5. “The finest level of my being, you’re still with me. We still look at each other, at that level be on site. We talk and laugh with each other, in a place beyond words.

But I like fried alone for you, in a place called reality.”    – Richard Lepinsky

10 Quotes: Frank E. Peretti
  1. “Practice doesn’t make perfect. It makes better.”
