FAITH IS THE BEST WAY OF LIFE
Faith brightnes our lives
in a magical way
bringing quiet and peace
to a troubled day.
faith is believing
that after the rain
birds will be singing
in sunshine again
faith lets us know
that the darkness of night
is followed each morning
by dawn's glowing light
so if you should feel
that you're troubled by strife
remember that faith
is the best way of life
i asked for God for strenght, that i might achieve
i was made weak, that i might learn humbly to obey....
i asked for help, that i might do greater things,
i was given infirmity, that i might do better things...
i asked for riches, that i might be happy,
i was given poverty that might be wise...
i asked for power, that i might have the praise of men,
i was given weakness, that i might feel the need of god...
i asked for all things, that i might enjoy life,
i was given life that i might enjoy all things...
i got nothing that i asked for...
but everything i hoped for
almost despite myself, my unspoken prayer were answered
i am among all men, most richly blessed!
i'm glad im me
no one looks
the way i do.
i have noticed
that it's true;
no one walks
the way i walk
no one talks
the way i talk
no one plays
the way i play
no one says
the things i say
i am special
i am me
there's no one
i'd rather be than me!
my joyful heart can't find enough words
to express how nice it would be
to exist, to live, to face challenges
to feel the breezes of the wind that had come from nowhere
but now.. how long can i stand
to bear the pain, the ache, the sorrow?
how long can i hold my tears not to fall?
i cannot find the answer amidst the misty clouds
and soon the darkness will cover the earth
the moon and stars will surely shine
but uncertainty will still be there
to block my mind, to doubt my existence.
blind unbelief is sure to err,
and scan his work in vain;
god is his own interpreter,
and he will make it plain
give the world the best you have
there are loyal hearts,
there are spirits brave
there are souls that are pure and true
then give to the world that best you have,
and the best shall come back to you.
give love, and love to your heart will flow
a strenght in your utmost need,
have faith and a score of hearts will show
their faith in your word and deed
for life is the mirror of king and slave
its just what you are and do
then give to the world the best you have
and the best will come back to you
live life to the fullest
if you treasure the beauty
that shows all around you
and try to add some of your own
enjoy the companionship
others can give you
yet value your moments alone;
if you honor opinions
that differ from yours
yet stand up for what you beleive,
admire the accomplishments,
other have made and take pride
in what you can achieve;
if you're a real friend
who comes through when it counts
who always is worhty of trust,
if you follow your heart
anywhere it may lead you
and do what you feel that you must;
if you love those around you
and love yourself too;
if your spirit is eager and full
then you know what it means
to live life to the fullest
and be the best you can be.
when there's sunshine in your heart
the world is like a mirror
reflecting back to you
whatever you have given it,
whatever is your view....
so if your thoughts are happy
and a smile is on your face,
you'll find the world is beautiful,
a warm and happy place....
so always keep your spirits up
and hope for what is best,
look for the good in everyone,
and see what's happiest...
for when there's sunshine in your heart
and faith in all you do,
the world can't help returning
that sunny joy to you.
light shining out of darkness
god moves in a mysterious way
his wonders to perform
he plants his footsteps in the sea,
and rides upon the storm.
deep in unfathomable mines
of never-failing skill;
he treasures up his bright designs,
and works his sovereign will
ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
the clouds ye so much dread
are big with mercy, and shall break
in blessings on your head.
judge not the lord by feeble sense,
but trust him for his grace;
behind a frowning providence
he hides a smiling face.
his purpose will ripen fast,
unfolding every hours;
the budy may have a bitter taste,
but sweet will be the flower
