Seeing Through Pain

'Tis a trying and woeful hour
Which bends the knee and proves weak my power to withstand
'Tis a painful and undesirable thorn
Which prods in directions which might be otherwise forlorn

'Tis the storms and trials of life
Which cause me to awaken in the midst of such strife
'Tis the continual pounding of the waves
Which teaches me to rely completely on Your hand that saves

'Tis sorrows such as these that cause
Us to gaze upon Thy scars and pains
And to consider, ponder, and pause
At Your work upon the cross, which washes away all our dark stains

- A. B. Seal
