His Joy – My Strength

These lines came while dwelling on the limitless richness of Nehemiah’s proclamation, “The Joy of the Lord is your strength.

The brightest day, the darkest night,
The greyest valley, the grandest height,
The sweetest song, the glum melody,
The gentle breeze, the tempest sea;

In happy tidings or grief unending,
With laughter or in bitter weeping,
While sickly or in perfect health,
In rank poverty or endless wealth;

When enemies surround me,
Or trumpet sounds the victory,
When all my friends despise, abase
Or shower me with unearned praise,

In hope and in strife,
In death and in life,
In all things that befall,
Be they grand or be they small,

His joy is my constant strength!
