If I can remain calm and quiet,With all the world crashing about me; Secure in the knowledge God loves me, When everyone else seems to doubt me.
If I can but keep on believing, What I know in my heart to be true; That darkness will fade with the morning, And that this will pass away, too.
Then nothing in life can defeat me, For as long as this knowledge remains; I can suffer whatever is happening, For I know God will break all of the chains.
That are binding me tight in the darkness, And trying to fill me with fear; For there is no night without dawning, And I know that my morning is near.
[Helen Steiner Rice]
