Life is like a patchwork quilt
And each little patch is a day
Some patches are rosy, happy, and
And some are dark and gray.
But each little patch as it's fitted
And sewn to keep it together
Makes a finished block in this life
Filled with sun and rainy weather.
So let me work on life's patchwork
Through the rainy days and the sun-
Trusting that when I have finished
The Master will say "Well done."
