Because there is a night-time
We appreciate the morn.
Following the sunset
Comes the welcome dawn.

Because of times of sickness
We learn to value health;
Through experiencing need
Gain thankfulness for wealth.

And when we’ve felt the sorrow
That sad bereavement brought,
We realized the precious gift
Of life our Saviour brought.

For through times of loneliness
We can more surely know
The beauty and the wonder
Of Christ's Presence here below.
