Silver lining

Through the darkest days of loss

And despair, when faith is in

Turmoil, ‘there’s no God up there!

A crossroads in life, d'ya press on or

D’ya stall? In desperate confusion

To Hell with it all!’


The world is a cauldron of all things

Unfair, how could God let this

Happen? Does he not hear your

Prayers? Does he not hear your prayers?

Does he not give a hoot? Have your

Sins of the past all come home to roost?


The labours of life for the young and

The old, misfortune stands waiting like

Catching a cold. It’s not part of a plan

Nor God’s anger unfurled, you’re not

Singled out, it’s just nature at work


Do not trade belief on the back of a tear

Remember the cross, the sponge and the

Spear. What tears were cried then, what

Sadness poured forth, but the one silver

Lining was faith in the Lord
