Statement of Faith

A musician needs all the keys
To play a symphony;
If he only used the white ones,
What beauty would there be?

The black keys make the music
Melodic to the ear;
If the pianist never used them,
What a different song we'd hear.

And just like that piano,
So it is with life;
It takes both light and dark 
To make the music flow just right.

God uses trials and sorrows
Like the pianist uses keys;
He combines the light and dark 
To make life's music sweet.

The song of life sounds better
When He uses all the keys;
For then He can turn a simple tune
Into a beautiful symphony.

1995 J M McIntosh

Praise the Lord, sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the saints (Psalm 149:1)
