I stumbled upon a winter day
Where darkness stole my smile away
But before I should be overcome
I remembered Jesus is where I’m from.
I happened on an autumn night
Fraught with sadness void of light
And as the lamp depleted oil
I remembered God to whom I’m loyal.
I found new hope in a springtime breeze
Dew has risen above green leas
Heart’s elation as joy draws nigh
Praise is given to the Lord on high.
Alas the sultry summer morn
Sleeping and feasting altogether forlorn
Before I shall succumb to sloth
I remember in Christ is eternal growth.
