Pious Pensees on the Tribulations of Life

In the tribulations of life, there's an afterglow,
a shining Beacon of everlasting hope
and renewal that begins in rebirth.
To this Light which transcends all darkness will I go,
and find a peace and a rest in His scope,
that infinite power which brings bliss and mirth.
There's a time for everything: a time for living;
a time for dying; a time for rejoicing;
a time for mourning; and a time for giving.
All we are, and all we have, are what we know;
we find meaning in one another, and learn to cope
with the rest here together on this planet Earth.
With what we're given, we can do no better or no worse:
with God, these tribulations of life for us are not a curse.
