I Peter 1:4-9
The sufferings of this present time
Are not to be compared
To the inheritance sublime
Our Father has prepared.
Without corruption, undefiled,
It “fadeth not away,”
Reserved in heaven for every child
Who keeps the narrow way.
Rejoice, for though the present hour
Is filled with many a trial,
The One who keeps you by His power
Will make it all worthwhile.
And when the One we love appears
Whom now we cannot see,
The faith that stands the trial of years
Will end in victory.
