I Know in Whom I’ve Trusted (a poem)

“Nevertheless, I know in whom I have trusted”
– 2nd Nephi 4:19

Once you’ve left the garden
Where do you find peace?
Once the scales have fallen
Where is some relief?

Once you’ve tasted bitter fruit (how)
Do you force it down?
Once the seas grow violent
How do you not drown?

Once the wind is blowing (is your)
Candle still aflame?
Once you’ve felt the crushing guilt (how)
Do you shed the shame?

Every day’s a battle
A challenge to be tested
I don’t have all the answers but
I know in whom I’ve trusted

“Whatever the question, the answer is the gospel of Jesus Christ”
-Elder Jeffrey Holland
