Hymn Text: The Weather of the Soul

Title: The Weather of the Soul

Meter: 8 7 8 7 D

Topic: perspective, optimism



A single dark and dismal day

Doesn’t mean your life is gray.

Like nature’s clouds that come and go,

That cast down their rain and snow,


They come to stay a little while,

Are a temporary trial

Then vanish as the sun appears

Cycling throughout the years.


A single, obvious mistake

Doesn’t you a failure of you make

Like a brief storm that blows away

Doesn’t make a rainy day.


Remember how it left you wet

Do not soon its winds forget

Let that moment make you strong

As you learn from what was wrong.


A single fault you see displayed

Shouldn’t make you feel dismayed.

For even when the sun shines bright

Sometimes clouds will mask its light.


Far better on the good to dwell

In others, for you as well.

To see instead all that is right

And to love, all flaws despite.
