Suffer Patiently

Suffer Patiently



In the scriptures I have not found, a time for us to doubt

Not one mention of a time, to be uncertain about

Not a time to consider questionable or unlikely

Not a time for skepticism, reluctance or ambiguity



Yet our lives are filled with ups and downs

With times of smiles, with times of frowns

But only the times beyond the shadows of our doubt

Only those times, are we to be certain about



Like a time of war, like a time of peace

A time to keep silent, a time to speak

A time to laugh; a time to cry

A time to be born; a time to die



So what should we tell those; who are suffering

Those doubting God hears; the prayers that they bring

Suffer patiently, isn’t music to their ears

All we can really say; is God truly cares



Remember Jesus in the garden; tears poured out for all to see

All His life He knew of the cross; yet He suffered patiently

God loves each of us; no He doesn’t bring our pain

But now’s the time to draw nigh to Him; a time to praise His Holy Name
