The Rainy Day



The Rainy Day
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the moldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.


We need rainy days to grow and change. We need to be challenged by them. Rain or shine, God is always with us.

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteous one will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. (Isaiah 58:8)
