Pain Makes Me Become Like You

St Gregory Illuminator Armenian Church in Singapore

Love calls for courage on my part
But pain’s own blessing feels my heart,
For pain makes me become like you
And leads me to your kingdom, too.
I feel true blessing in my pain;
Such suffering for me is gain,
For what your providence will do
Is make me one, my God, with you.
Blessed Titus Brandsma (1881–1942)
