Is your soul now being sifted,
By various troubles and trials?
Even Peter succumbed to temptation,
He forcefully made three denials.
Is the enemy shouting lies in your ear?
Christ’s word will silence his wiles!
Does the world revile and mistreat you
Though you’ve gone the extra mile?
You’re in very fine company,
John and Paul both faced earthly exile.
So don’t give up- keep up the fight,
While despair may be in style,
You will soon feel the Savior’s loving embrace
Just patiently wait for awhile.
