Life's Miles



   




Life has many glorious miles
Where winds are kind and sunshine smiles
Where grass is soft beneath our feet
And flowers bountiful and sweet

Life has many grueling miles
Of hurt and dirt and sorrow’s trials
Where fears and tears torment, bequeath
We chew the grit between our teeth

Life has many merry miles
Where mercy’s tender touch beguiles
Filling our mouths with melody
And happy hearts with charity

Life has many lonesome miles
Robbing the lips of laughing smiles
As twists and turns would make us fall
But God is faithful through them all
