Painful Words of Truth & Encouragement

20 Oct

This was read at our son Cole’s funeral by Bill Boren in 1991 and again yesterday (1/4/14) at Bethany and Katie’s service. It’s meant a lot to me over the years and I’ve shared it with many grieving friends.

He Maketh No MistakeP

My Father’s way may twist and turn
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I’m glad to know,
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I’ll trust my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.

Tho’ night be dark and it may seem
That day will never break,
I’ll pin my faith, my all, in Him,
He maketh no mistake.

There’s so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight’s far too dim,
But come what may,
I’ll simply trust and leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift,
And plain it all He’ll make,
Through all the way, tho’ dark to me,
He made not one mistake.

– A.M. Overton, 1932
