Through it All

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

Louise Gibson




It is easy to be pleasant
when life flows by like a song.
But the person worthwhile is one who will smile
when everything goes wrong.


For the test of the heart is trouble,
and it always comes with the years.
The smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through the tears.


If you want to be happy, begin where you are.
Don’t wait for some rapture that’s future and far.
Begin to be joyous, determine to be glad.
And soon you’ll forget that you ever were sad.


Through it all, keep looking up.
That’s where our future lies.
Jesus bids us to come unto Him.
His peace is our ultimate prize.


“When they were discouraged, I smiled and that
encouraged them and lightened their spirits.”
(Job 29:24)
