A Song In The Night

I am tired tonight, but I come unto Thee;
O Saviour so tender, have patience with me.
Thou knowest the language of weakness and pain;
Thyself was oft weary when daylight did wane.
I am burdened tonight; there are sorrows that lie
So mist-like before me, they darken the sky.
Saviour divine, wilt Thou aid me to bear
The grief to Thy feet, and to leave its aches there?

I'm defeated tonight— of the hopes that were born
In the dew and the shine and the peace of the morn
How little remaineth-- How broken and lost!
Seem my plans that vexation and failure have crossed!
I am lonely tonight; I am longing for those
Whose sun on the hill- tops of glory arose.
Yet, vanquished and lonely, I cling unto Thee,
And Thou art the brightness of Heaven to me.

I am weak as a child; I have wandered away
Too far from the Master I follow today;
Yet trusting His love, and repenting the wrong,
Tonight, in my sadness, His strength is my song.
Friend never failing, though all should forsake,
Friend growing dearer, till I shall awake

In Thy likeness at last, never more let me be
An instant forgetful, dear Saviour, of Thee!
But come in the darkness and come in the noon-
And aye let me watch, for Thy coming is soon!
And still through all changes, Thou changeless and true,
Thyself in my spirit reveal and renew.

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Ecclesiastes 12:1  
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth,
while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh,
when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

Psalm 42:8  
Yet the LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime,
and in the night His song shall be with me, and my prayer
unto the God of my life.

How often do Christians feel lonely...yet it is God who promises to
always be there for us. He is just a prayer away! And as we get older,
we find that His friendship outlasts all earthly ones. My grandmother passed
away a few years ago. She lived a full life, full of friends and family,
full of tears and laughter but in the end, most of her friends passed
away before her. Her dear husband passed away 38 years before her.
Those parties in her photo-album... all gone. The friends she loved so
dearly ...they all passed away. Near the end of her life her
e on earth,
she had the Lord, in whom she trusted and her children, whom she loved...
and when it came to her leaving this world, she passed away in
the night...it was God in her final hours of her life
on earth...in the end, He was there for her in the night.

May we cling ever to our blessed Savior-- The Lord Jesus...He promises
never to leave us in Matthew 28:20:

"Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
