Amid the trials that I meet

1
Amid the trials that I meet,
Amid the thorns that pierce my feet,
One thought remains supremely sweet—
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
What need I fear when Thou art near,
    And thinkest, Lord, of me!
2
The cares of life come thronging fast,
Upon my soul their shadows cast;
Their gloom reminds my heart at last
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
3
Let shadows come, let shadows go,
Let life be bright, or dark with woe,
I am content, for this I know
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!

It's only today I have understand the message been delivered in this hymn.

It's a powerful revelation for me and my wife Bertha. We are encouraged in every way possible and continue trusting the Lord.
