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!

I am sitting here and watching my loving wife on a sick bed. Our two children playing oblivious of the great sorrow that has overtaken me. With the song in the background and an uncertain future, I am trying to pull myself together. Please pray for us.
