Right After

Light after darkness, gain after loss;
Strength after weakness, crown after cross;
Sweet after bitter, hope after fears;
Home after wandering, praise after tears;

Sheaves after sowing, sun after rain;
Sight after mystery, peace after pain;
Joy after sorrow, calm after blast;
Rest after weariness, sweet rest at last;

Near after distant, gleam after gloom;
Love after loneliness, life after tomb;
After long agony, rapture of bliss;
Right was the pathway, leading to this.
— Francis Havergal

Stand!

Take a look at the sun, son
See the ferociousness with which it burns
See for yourself, no man can withstand its glory
It’s east-west passage tell the story

The silver lining of every dark cloud
Remember this when your path is obstructed by clouds of doubt
The sun will surely shine is what God has vowed
And no matter the length of the night, the sun will surely come out.

So be not dismayed when all exudes gloom
Neither fazed when all speak nothing but doom
But hold fast to your confident assurance
Stand firm and maintain d victors’ stance
