Tribulation Worketh Patience

by Margaret Cagle

I have learned to be more patient.
Would you really like to know how?
I have had my share of tribulation,
And I am much more patient now.

I have learned to enjoy good times,
And I have learned to accept the bad.
I have learned to smile at adversity,
Instead of feeling so blue and sad.

You will use fewer muscles to smile
Than you will use when you frown,
And you know they say that a frown
Is really a smile that is upside down.

Friend, when some tribulation comes,
Just let the Lord see you through.
He may just really be planning
To impart more patience to you.
