Not Ever

"...He hath said, 'I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.'"
(Hebrews 13:5; Deuteronomy 31:8)

God hath not promised
Skies always blue
Flower-strewn pathways
All our life 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
