February 22, 1937

Some Time We'll Understand
Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We’ll read the meaning of our tears,
And there, some time, we’ll understand.
We’ll catch the broken thread again,
And finish what we here began;
Heav’n will the mysteries explain,
And then, ah then, we’ll understand.

We’ll know why clouds instead of sun
Were over many a cherished plan;
Why song has ceased when scarce begun;
’Tis there, some time, we’ll understand.

God knows the way, He holds the key,
He guides us with unerring hand;
Some time with tearless eyes we’ll see;
Yes, there, up there, we’ll understand.

Then trust in God through all the days;
Fear not, for He doth hold thy hand;
Though dark thy way, still sing and praise,
Some time, some time we’ll understand.
(Maxwell N Cornelius, 1891)


  1. I love that Mum shared this song with you. What a gift xo

  2. I read this somewhere "Life is like making tea! Boil your ego, Evaporate your worries, Dilute your Sorrows, Filter your mistakes & Get the taste of happiness ..." It's easier said than done.

  3. So nice to "hear" Mum's words. This is what made her spirit strong. Thank you


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a leaf to read ...
