Oh Lord Tell Me Why

Poem By William F. O'Brien

When the burdens seem like mountains,
When the troubles have no end,
When the tears flow like fountains,
When our hearts we cannot mend.
Oh Lord tell me why!

We know You never give more
Than You give us strength to bear.
Only through pain and sorrow,
Life's burdens we learn to share.

We know to bring You our worries and troubles,
Our griefs and heartaches You will heal.
With our faith in You, they vanish like bubbles,
And through Your Grace our life's future we seal.

If this test we cannot pass,
If this course we must run,
Before we may come at last
To our Heavenly Home.
Oh Lord tell me why!

Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All

Some say risk nothing, try only for the sure thing,
Others say nothing gambled nothing gained,
Go all out for your dream.
Life can be lived either way, but for me,

What Makes Life Worth Living

What makes life worth while?
What makes life worth living?
The answer is ---- Only our sharing
And our giving!
