This Too Will Pass by Grace Noll Crowell

This too will pass. O heart, say it over and over – out of your deepest sorrow, out of your deepest grief, no hurt can last forever – perhaps tomorrow will bring relief. 

This too will pass. It will spend itself – its fury will die as the wind dies down with the setting sun; assuaged and calm, you will rest again, forgetting a thing that is done.

Repeat it again and again, O heart, for your comfort; this, too, will pass as surely as passed before the old forgotten pain, and the other sorrows that once you bore.

As certain as stars at night, or dawn after darkness, inherent as the lift of the blowing grass, whatever your despair or frustration – this, too, will pass!


One thought on “This Too Will Pass by Grace Noll Crowell

  1. In the darkness of all my trials and pain I must remember not only that this too shall pass but that Christ is working all things out within this storm. And through it all, his sovereignty shall emerge as the strength that brings me to victory in all things!

    Thanks for the reminder, Anna!
