Trials make the promise sweet

"Tis my happiness below,
Not to love without the cross;
But the Saviour's power to know,
Sanctifying every loss.

Trials must and will befall;
But with humble faith to see,
Love inscribed upon them all,
This is happiness to me.

Trials make the promise sweet;
Trials give new life to prayer;
Trials bring me to his feet,
Lay me low, and keep me there." ~ Cowper
