Just why does the Lord allow tragedy’s pain?
How could it be possible that there’s a gain?
Does God really see the dark anguished despair?
Amid crushing pain, will He show me His care?
Do not lose your courage - take heart and look up:
For God’s in control of each thing in your cup;
He sees the full picture of life as a whole,
And works it all out for the best of your soul!
When heartache and anguish is dished on my plate,
I must praise my God for His all-knowing trait:
For He will allow only that which is best,
And gives grace sufficient for each painful test.
Although it is tragedy, pain or abuse-
Commit it to God for His infinite use:
For He has a plan of eternal design,
And say “Lord, not my will be done, but just Thine.”
An attitude, meek, with God’s help do maintain-
Assured amid heartache thy Lord will sustain:
For when you commit all the pain to His hand,
He works it all out for the best that He’s planned.
God uses each circumstance, painful and grim
To spill out His power right over the brim:
For when we are weak then our God becomes strong,
And midst ceaseless anguish creates a new song.
The enemy seeks to destroy us through pain,
But God supervises the Devil’s disdain;
The Lord always writes the last chapter, you see-
And He shows His power to you and to me!
So yield all your rights and your life to His hand-
Each dark situation you don’t understand;
When given to Him, He your life fully holds,
And He for His praise brings you forth as pure gold!
