Will I have what it takes?

When It's Time

You'll give me the ticket I need

You'll give me the ticket I need just as I get on the train.

I'll have the umbrella at hand

I'll have the umbrella at hand as soon as I enter the rain.

The courage to die as a martyr

The courage to die as a martyr will come right before I must die.

And the faith to endure great trials will come

And the faith to endure great trials will come when those trials come into my life.

I think that I know what I need,

I think that I know what I need, but you know far better than I.

In you

In you, and your strength,

In you, and your strength, and your presence with me

In you, and your strength, and your presence with me, I'll have what I need

In you, and your strength, and your presence with me I'll have what I need - when it's time.

I'll have what I need - when it's time.

I'll have what I need - when it's time.

I'll have what I need - when it's time.

Thanks for reading! This poem is addressed to God, using the metaphor of a child and father. It is based on a promise God gave me right before one of the hardest times in my life. I was pretty young and didn't think I'd have the courage to face tough times... but when the tough times came, He gave me all I needed. @thislittlelight
