Rejoice in the Lord

March 17, 2014 by Joseph Krohn

God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the Lord though your testing seems long;patch
In darkness He giveth a song.

I could not see through the shadows ahead,
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.

Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging, more fruit I will bear.

O rejoice in the Lord, He makes no mistake.
He knoweth the end of each path that I take.
For when I am tried and purified,
I shall come forth as gold.
—Ron Hamilton (“Patch the Pirate”)
