In The Darkness
Copyright © 1999, James A. Pharis, Jr.
Dear friends of mine and those to be
In midst of night when thoughts are low,
When darkness and doubts remain,
Reflect and know this refrain..
Sometime all have doubts and fears
That challenge the most stalwart soul.
In those times that look less good
God holds us and we are understood.
If thoughts are drear and sleep escapes
And thoughts turn inward instead of out,
God has not run out, nor yet our sand.
We are in the hollow of his hand.
