The clouds disappeared in the early dawn
And now the rain is finally gone.
The darkest night was there before,
I did not think I could take any more.
People move on and leave you behind,
Oh how people can be so unkind.
The sun is finally breaking the dark of night,
Perhaps now I can end this fight.
I could not see in the midst of my pain
That to wash it away, God sent the rain.
Now that I’ve made it through the darkest time,
A rainbow stands in the sky, sublime.
It reminds of the thousands of promises kept,
By God, who I didn’t trust enough, but instead wept.
Over and over He’s proven Himself,
Why then did I shove my faith on a shelf?
His promises are the only ones consistently fulfilled,
I need to allow my doubts to be completely killed.
As the saying goes, “It is always darkest before the dawn.”
Let us finish it by saying, “Child, trust on!”
