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.
