I must admit I don't understand
Why God would let me face this painful circumstance.
All I have to cling to is His Word and His Name
But that's enough so I will trust
It's For My Good and for His Glory
This trial's not the end of the story
There's a bigger picture
God alone can see.
Faith will take me through this sorrow
For I know He holds tomorrow
And He assures me it's for my good
And for His glory.
I love the Lord and He has promised me
To work all things for good; through my tears I believe
That His ways are higher than any of my own
And though my heart aches He makes no mistakes.
Though I would not have chosen the suffering that has come
I'm willing now to say, "Lord, not my will but thine be done."
