Ah, my dear angry Lord,
Since thou dost love, yet strike;
Cast down, yet help afford;
Sure I will do the like.

I will complain, yet praise;
I will bewail, approve;
And all my sour-sweet days
I will lament and love.

    I really enjoyed this poem! The powerful emotions conveyed through such simple language really resonate with me. It manages to capture this complicated relationship with faith so perfectly. Makes you reflect on your own life and how sometimes struggles really do come with blessings. Beautiful read!
