Faith & Courage

Fear not, my heart,
Even the darkest night must end at dawn!
Clouds and mist may come and go
But they cannot rob sun's radiant glow.
Look up, mine eyes, keep steady watch,
For never must you lose your guiding star.
Hold fast! Hold fast!
Faith and courage are His tender blessings;
He will not hold these from you when He sees
your yearning, struggling soul.
Rest will come when thy toil is done.

~Swami Paramandanda
