God has a Path

Here is a poem I wrote a few weeks ago. Truly, it is borne from my time in Kagawa. Anyone good at writing melodies and want to give this hymn a tune?

God has a Path

Dark days I see, my purpose lost,
Where is the road that once was clear?
Where is the light, so bright ahead?
Where is my path, so straight with ease?

God has a way, God has a path.
When darkness looms, He does not move.
When shadows fall, He does not change.
They only serve to hide His face.

As youths we run and soar the skies,
The world is clear, easy to see.
So swifly we fall, we see no more,
Uncertain with doubt and made unsure.

But God has a way, God has a path.
When darkness looms, He does not move.
When shadows fall, He does not change.
They scarcely serve to hide His face.

Every man doubts, is sometimes blind.
All hopes are crushed, all dreams are slain,
But in Christ the dead shall live again.
In Christ the crushed shall breathe anew.

For God has a way, God has a path.
When darkness looms, He does not move.
When shadows fall, He does not change.
Behind the clouds, we see His face.

The lame can walk, the blind shall see,
All beaten saints, with joy shall leap.
Our nights are short, our days as years,
Each crying child, the Father hears.

God has a way, God has a path.
When darkness looms, He does not move.
When shadows fall, He does not change.
No darkness shall ever hide His face.

He cannot change, we are not lost,
We ever-see by the light of His cross.
Each cloud shall pass, each mist shall fade,
For God has a path, He has a way.
