    Something Beautiful Remains
    The tide recedes but leaves behind
    bright seashells on the sand.
    The sun goes down, but gentle
    warmth still lingers on the land.
    The music stops, and yet it echoes
    on in sweet refrains…..
    For every joy that passes,
    something beautiful remains.

    If We Could See Beyond Today
    If we could see beyond today

    As God can see,

    If all the clouds should roll away,

    The shadows flee;

    O’er present griefs we would not fret,

    Each sorrow we would soon forget,

    For many joys are waiting yet

    For you and me.

    If we could know beyond today

    As God doth know,

    Why dearest treasures pass away,

    And tears must flow;

    And why the darkness leads to light,

    Why dreary days will soon grow bright,

    Some day life’s wrong will be made right,

    Faith tells us so.

    If we could see, if we could know

    We often say,

    But God in love a veil doth throw

    Across our way.

    We cannot see what lies before,

    And so we cling to Him the more,

    He leads us till this life is o’er,

    Trust and obey.
