Last Night, I heard a Robin Singing in the Rain



Last night, I heard a robin singing in the rain
And the raindrops patter made a sweet refrain
Making all the sweeter the music in the strain
And I thought
When trouble comes, as trouble will
Why should I stop singing?
It may be, around the hill
The sun shines bright on the green world still
He who faces burdens with a heart of cheer
Makes the burden lighter
If there falls a tear
Sweeter is the cadence in the sound we hear
I have learned your lesson
Oh bird of dappled wing
Listening to your music with its lilt of spring
When the storm cloud darkens, then's the time to sing.
