Title: Many a Day
Meter: 8 8 8 8 D
Topic: optimism, service, humility, faith, trust
Many a dark and dreary day
Is lightened by looking around,
Finding another on the way
Who anxiously seeks to be found,
And leading him kindly to light,
By walking with him a while.
Although the day still isn’t bright
The both of you now share a smile.
Many a sick and sour mood
Is sweetened by seeking to serve.
Taking a humble attitude,
To fill the needs that you observe.
For Christ centered not on his needs
When walking with us here below.
Instead, he performed selfless deeds,
With all gifts that he could bestow.
Many a strange and sudden blow
Is dampened by finding a way
To use the searing pain to grow
And to bend like moldable clay.
In the hands of the one who will
Now shape you, and will never cease,
Until his mighty hands fulfill
By revealing their masterpiece.
