Smiles from Frowns
Do not worry about toils or strife,
All the troubles within your life;
The Lord will be there for you,
Helping with each day through.
Do not worry about what to eat,
If it will be sour or if it be sweet;
For the Lord God will provide,
The nourishment is never denied.
Do not worry about what to drink,
But remember God when you think;
The Lord will never let you thirst,
When you are putting Him first.
Do not worry about what to wear,
God will not allow you to be bare;
Apparel on your body He will give,
Covering your nakedness to live.
Life is more than drink and food,
Just bear in mind the right attitude;
So make a smile from your frown,
Merely by turning it upside down.
