Everyone Believes

There is none that can say he does not believe.
He lies down to sleep at night expecting to awake at dawn.
The gardener plants his seeds beneath the sod
Fully expecting to see the Spring flowers push away the clod.
                    He has faith.

What man says when clouds are seen in the sky
Take heart, have patience, for it will clear by and by.
Trust in God most high who sees beneath Winter’s fields of snow
The silent harvest of Spring’s future grow.
God’s power he must know
                    He has faith.

He who lies down on his bed to sleep.
Content to forget troubles locked in slumber deep.
Puts his worries aside for another to keep.
For he hopes that God is not asleep.
                   He has faith.

Whoever says “tomorrow” or “the unknown”
“The future” he trusts in God alone.
He dare not to disown.
                   He has faith.

The man that watches the child’s eye-lids close.
He secretly knows each breath God bestows.
He dares to live when his life offers only woes.
God’s comfort he knows.
                  He has faith.
