The Common Thread

        There is a thread
        That finds its way into every human life.
        Its the common thread;
        Interwoven with the warp and woof of life.

        There is a dread
        Of the common thread of human pain and strife.
        It's a common thread;
        Interwoven within every human life.

        No man escapes the common thread;
        It comes to one and all.
        It's the common thread;
        The essence of the warp and woof of life.

        It's the common thread, approached with dread
        That causes the most pain;
        But the common thread
        When once embraced, will bring to us much gain.

1 Peter 4:12 - 13 (NKJ)   "Beloved do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy."
