Bible Riddle: May 2002
I was a man of great wealth and fame,
Until a great fall and disaster came.
My story is told in poem and prose;
A story you know quite well, I suppose.
My heart was saddened as a great wind blew;
Pains and sorrows pierced me through.
When my faith was tested I refused to deny
The goodness of God who reigns on high.
My wife and friends no comfort brought,
As the cause of my suffering I vainly sought.
I still blessed God for the mercy he shows,
When at last had passed my troubles and woes.
My story has comforted many a broken heart,
And caused many downcasts to make a new start.
By patience, endurance, I came to fame;
I'm quite ashamed if you know not my name.
