Faith


My faith has been tested
My love has been stretched
I've learned so much
But am blind to the rest

My mind has been trained
My heart has been weighed
I've lost so much
But my hope has remained

These questions left unanswered
The confusion pursues
But I have no fear
For my life is in you

Your faith is unfailing
Your love shall remain
Your mind is all-knowing
Your heart is the same
