When trials and tribulations come my way,
There's only one thought that gets me through the day.
I know my Lord will stay by my side,
And with an ever-present hand, He will guide.
No matter the affliction life may bring,
Nothing can stop the praises I sing.
For he loved us enough to give his only son,
And from the grasp of Satan we were won.
Faithful and trusting I'll always be,
For I know my Lord will carry me.
He will be with me wherever I may roam,
Until the day I sing, "Lord I'm coming Home!"
I wrote this poem in my freshman year in college during an extremely
trying time. I have never written any poetry before, but one night I grabbed
a sheet of paper and the words just flowed out effortlessly. I firmly
believe God is the true author of this poem which has brought me comfort in
many situations. I hope it can help others as well.
