This Too Shall Pass (Helen Steiner Rice)

Posted on

Troubles, we have many. They will come and go. However, when the problems are in our midst, we usually can’t see through the mountain. There is no hope, our hearts will cry. It is too difficult. I can’t deal with it. Helen Steiner Rice wrote a beautiful poem that can perhaps help us across the mountain.

This Too Shall Pass (written by Helen Steiner Rice)

If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be-

If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me-

If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too-

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains

That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear-
For there is no night without dawning
And I know that my morning is near.
