Poetry Pleases: Faith

John Ayling's poem reminds us that there are few sorrows when faith replaces fear.

Time does not sleep or rest
It passes like the wing,
Silent and unheeded
By every human mind.

Alpha and Omega,
The first and last, are one:
And death, that final seems
Is but new life begun.

The Lord makes all things new,
And wipes away all tears,
For sorrows will be few
When faith replaces fears.
