A LIVING FAITH


          I dreamed many dreams that never came true,

              I’ve seen them vanish at dawn.

          But, I’ve realized enough of my dreams, thank God,

              To make me want to dream on.

           I’ve prayed many prayers, when no answer came

              Tho I’ve waited patient, long,

           But answers have come to enough of my prayers,

              To make me keep praying on.

           I’ve trusted many a friend, that failed

              And left me to weep alone,

          But, I’ve found enough of my friends true blue,

             To keep me trusting on.

          I’ve sown many seed that fell by the way

             For the birds to feed upon,

          But , I’ve held enough golden sheaves in my hand

             To make me keep sowing on.

          I’ve drained the cup of disappointment in pain

             And gone many days without song

          But, I’ve sipped enough nectar from the roses of life,

             To make me want to live on.
