LOOK on the Sunny Side
by Helen Steiner Rice
There are always two sides, the good and the bad,
The dark and the light, the sad and the glad.
But in looking back over the good and the bad,
We're aware of the number of
good things we've had,
And in counting our blessings,
we find when 'we're through
We've no reason at all to complain or be blue.
So thank God for the good things
He has already done,
And be grateful to Him for the battles you've won
And know that the same God
who helped you before
Is ready and willing to help you once more.
Then with faith in your heart,
reach out for God's hand
And accept what He sends,
though you can't understand.
For our Father in heaven always
knows -what is best,
And if you trust His wisdom,
your life will be blessed.
For always remember that whatever betide you,
You are never alone, for God is beside you.
