How do you find joy in the midst of despair?
How do you smile when it seems no one cares?
The pain is worse than I can describe.
Every day you smile when you really want to hide.
What happens when the power of prayer is taken away,
By the evil of someone else's free will today?
How did Job not take his life,
Even when he had nothing but strife?
His faith and trust in the Lord did not break.
That is not something that he could fake.
In his weakness God was made strong,
And all of his friends were eventually proven wrong.
His experience of pain will never depart,
How did he allow joy back in his heart?
