PAIN AND …

I have been through intense suffering

Much more than the common pain.

Though it was more debilitating

Do not want to do that again!

.

.

Then another pain came over me

Vary hard to describe!

A feeling that so torturous

Hell fires may ascribe!

.

.

Without the fire, unquenchable,

A feeling, what can be said?

That pure peace and rest I would never attain,

That I will never more know sweet rest.

.

.

Rest from the memory of suffering

Rest from the pains of hell,

Rest from the feeling that never again

Would I sense that all is well!

.

.

But praise The Lord!  I have that rest now,

A night of sweet, dreamless sleep.

Not that it ended the pain within

But this assurance I will keep.

.

.

Assurance that God is always near!

That this is the basis for praise!

That He will see me safe at last

To be kept through endless days!

.

.

Thank you, Father!  You are good to me!

What would I do without You?

You know my frame, You see right through me!

Worship!  What more can I do!? (*)

.

.

(*) Not just and exclamation, an honest question!
