After the Storm

a poem by Mabel Annie Chacko

When the tide comes rolling in,
And the mighty oceans roar,
It can go on land so far,
That is all, it goes no more.

When the storm clouds gather around,
And the great big raindrops fall,
Just so much will fall to earth,
As it heeds the Master’s call.

When the load becomes so heavy,
That the body cries in pain,
Remember that this too will end,
Like the tide and the rain.

So adorn yourself with gladness,
Remember God is really there,
He takes time to feed the sparrow,
And he always answers prayers.
