Tune:  Praise God from Whom all Blessings flow…

Dedicated Our Cancer Stricken Daughter in America

Here´s what she wrote in her last journal On the morning of my most recent chemo last Friday, it was raining when I was taking the girls to school. But the sun was shining through the rain and made a perfect rainbow in the sky from one end to the other. It was so beautiful, and it made me cry! I was not feeling very enthusiastic about yet another chemo treatment, knowing how it completely knocks me down. But this rainbow was a Godsend to me . . . his special promise to me . . . to carry me through that day. I choose to trust God and not give up this fight against cancer. I know He is right here with me.

The rest at night a wonder is,
right there we small and big are His,
the strongest like a baby sleeps,
though in his sleep he sometimes weeps!

The shadows of the slumber´s night
may blur the morning´s sunny light,
but even if our soul is down
He on us puts His mercies´ crown!  (Ps. 103:4)

Despite all gloom a cloudless sky
in Jesus Christ does see our eye,
the rainbow from His Throne of grace
reflects our Savior´s smiling face!

His grace is like the ocean deep
in daylight and when you´re asleep,
grace is your premise and your choice,
drink of that ocean and rejoice!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
In Christ away all darkness goes,
the honey of the promised land,
o, do enjoy right from His hand!
