A Little Song

by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

   Oh, a great world, a fair world, a true world I find it;
   A sun that never forgets to rise,
   On the darkest night, a star in the skies,
   And a God of love behind it.

   Oh, a good life, a sweet life, a large life I take it,
   Is what He offers to you, and me;
   A chance to do, and a chance to be,
   Whatever we chose to make it.

   Oh, a far way, a high way, a sure way He leads us;
   And if the journey at times seems long,
   We must trudge ahead, with a trustful song,
   And know at the end He needs us.
