Hymn – So life can be hard and sometimes tough- Lyrics
So life can be hard and sometimes tough,
But there’s both the smooth and the rough;
For life can be great and here’s a sign,
In Jesus his holy gift divine:
A sign in the flying of a dove,
Ever present Spirit of his love,
A symbol of the God that is above
Reminds us life is good.
So life is a thing to be enjoyed,
And not to be wasted or destroyed.
For laughter is part of God’s design;
And joy is another gift divine: Refrain
So go to the lonely and the sad,
And give them your love and make them glad,
For helping the light of hope to shine,
Your gift is a love that is divine: Refrain
