Because there is a night-time
We appreciate the morn.
Following the sunset
There's the welcome dawn.
Because of times of sickness
We learn to value health;
Through experiencing need
Comes thankfulness for wealth.
And when we've felt the sorrow
That sad bereavement brought,
We realize 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.
