When the night feels so dark,

And the roads very treacherous,

When heavy clouds fill the day,

And the word hope seems

so far away,

Jesus are you there?


When everything is falling apart,

And our joy is taken away,

When all the strength is gone away,

And our cares and burdens

overwhelm us,

Jesus are you there?


When our buds are nipped

before they blossom,

And we do not see the fruits

of our labour,

When our dreams are repressed,

Jesus are you there?


Remind us that you are there,

That you see through it all,

And it all works for our good,

Even when we don’t feel it,

Remind us you are there.





As I sat on that cloud,

A wild race occurred through my head,

I knew nothing, nothing about this virtue…

So priceless,  yet comparable to no other.

I prayed, I hoped, I waited…

At least that was the much I could do.


I did not know for how long I would be there,

But I still sat still…

I waited! I waited! I waited!

I wasn’t sure how long it would take,

But I still pressed on…

I did not know if  it would be worth…

But I still waited.


There were times I lost this virtue…

But somehow I still found  it.

It seemed so real, yet so vague.

I felt like forgetting its existence,

But I knew that would be far fetched,

So I still waited…


Then I saw a crack on the cloud,

Peeped through and saw a sign,

A sign so clear, that it was not in vain,

That It was over…

That patience realy does pay,

That the virtue of patience…

Was perhaps the greatest.
