What God Hath Promised
by Annie Johnson Flint

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

God hath not promised we shall not know
Toil and temptation, trouble and woe;
He hath not told us we shall not bear
Many a burden, many a care.

God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,
Swift, easy travel, needing no guide;
Never a mountain rocky and steep,
Never a river turbid and deep.

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.


“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me… 
I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 
After a little while the world will no longer see Me, 
but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also…  
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; 
not as the world gives do I give to you. 
Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” 
John 14:1,18-19,27
