There’s that cute kid song–you probably remember it. Happy All the Time, *clap, clap.
But who’s happy ALL the time? I mean, life definitely has its ups and downs. I call it riding the rollercoaster of the vicissitudes of life! Only it isn’t a fun ride ALL THE TIME!
But here is sweet truth from Isaiah 26:3 (NLT) —
You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you.
Singing I go along life’s road;
Praising the Lord,
Praising the Lord!
Singing I go along life’s road,
for Jesus has lifted my load.
The words above are the refrain to the hymn, “Singing I Go,” written by Eliza Hewett. She wrote over 70 hymns. Another of her hymns that many know is, “Will There Be any Stars?”
Earthly friends may prove untrue,
Doubts and fears assail;
One still loves and cares for you;
One who will not fail.
Tho’ the sky be dark and drear,
Fierce and strong the gale,
Just remember He is near,
And He will not fail.
In life’s dark and bitter hour,
Love will still prevail;
Trust His everlasting pow’r
Jesus will not fail
Jesus never fails,
Jesus never fails.
Heav’n and earth may pass away,
But Jesus never fails.
