Oh, how the trials hurt my heart
With nowhere to escape,
I am forced to run to God
And on His wisdom wait.
Patiently, God will try my faith
That I may test His faithfulness,
When trapped within the walls of pain
He shows me all His gentleness.
While the fear drives me to my Bible
For comfort and relief,
To gain a message for the moment
When craving for some peace.
Oh God, I cry, please answer
As I fall upon my knees,
Make some sense to me right now
Your faith I want to seize.
So often though, the deepest anguish
Just doesn't go away,
So God teaches me to keep on trusting
For all on Him to lay.
Lord, show me what You're doing
I don't want a bitter heart,
Give me a dose of joy to share
So I don't fall apart.
I want to believe You're in control
That all is in Your will,
Please keep my hope alive
To trust You love me still.
For You beat all grief at Calvary
The fighting has been done,
Help me now, to rest upon Your love
So my fear is overcome.
