POEM (What More Can you Ask?)

What More Can You Ask?

God's love endures forever---
What a wonderful thing to know
When the tides of life run against you
and your spirit is downcast and low ...
God's kindness is ever around you,
Always ready to freely impart
Strength to your faltering spirit,
Cheer to your lonely heart ...
God's presence is ever beside you,
As near as the reach of your hand,
You have but to tell Him your troubles,
There is nothing He won't understand ...
And knowing God's love is unfailing,
And His mercy unending and great,
You have but to trust in His promise ---
God comes not too soon or tooo late ...
So wait with a heart that is patient
For the goodness of God to prevail ---
For never do prayers go unanswered,
And His mercy and love never fail.
