So many questions I can’t find answers to;
So many things that I don’t understand;
So many times I don’t know what to do:
Dear Father, won’t you guide me with your gentle hand?
For so many times, you’ve lit my darkness,
And through the years, you’ve been my most trusted friend.
So often you’ve calmed my storm and shown me the way;
Dear Lord, could you do it for me once again?
A voice, tender and kind,
Quiets my heart and illuminates my mind:
“All things shall work together for thy good:
All things will come about the way they should;
If you search and pray and be believing,
All these things shall be for thy good.”
I think of Jesus, and all he passed through When he was here upon the earth.
He bore sorrow, pain and affliction, Even from the moment of his birth.
So I know he knows how I feel,
And I hear those words again, bringing hope and healing:
And I know through faith, I’ll overcome Every challenge I encounter every day.
As Jesus died and rose again, I’ll rise up, too, as I look to him in faith!
As I look to him in faith…
All things shall work together for my good;
All things will come about the way they should.
As I search and pray and be believing,
All these things shall be for my good…
All these things – even the hard ones –
Shall all work together
For my good.
(As I search and pray and be believing…)
