Author unknown

Until I learned to trust,I did not learn to pray, And I did not learn to fully trustTill sorrows came my way.

Until I felt my weakness,His strength I never knew,Nor dreamed till I was strickenThat He would see me through.

Who deepest drinks of sorrowDrinks deepest too of grace,He sends the storm so He himself,Can be our hiding place.

His heart that seeks our highest goodKnows well when things annoy,We would not long for heavenIf earth held only joy.
