Poem

Rejoice!

Michael Beck Michael Beck

Rejoice when cup runs over
Rejoice when Cherith’s dry
Rejoice when life is simple
Rejoice when all is “Why?”

Rejoice when trouble finds you
Rejoice in days serene
Rejoice in times of plenty
Rejoice when things are lean

Rejoice upon the mountain
When blessings overtake
Rejoice deep in the valley
When earth beneath you shakes

Rejoice when sickness visits
Rejoice when you are strong
Rejoice when all is working
Rejoice when all seems wrong

Rejoice when prayers are answered
When morning light arrives
Rejoice when night’s unending
When darkness won’t subside

Rejoice in every season
No matter how life turns
Rejoice your God is working
There’s something you can learn

Rejoice that He’s your portion
Rejoice though rich or poor
Rejoice that He is with you
Rejoice forevermore

“Rejoice evermore.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16)
