• Our Father knows what’s best for us,
    So why should we complain …
    We always want the sunshine,
    But He knows there must be rain.
  • We love the sound of laughter
    And the merriment of cheer;
    But our hearts would lose their tenderness
    If we never shed a tear.
  • Our Father tests us often
    With suffering and with sorrow;
    He tests us, not to punish us,
    But to help us meet “tomorrow.”
  • For growing trees are strengthened
    When they withstand the storm;
    And the sharp cut of the chisel
    Gives the marble grace and form.
  • God never hurts us needlessly,
    And He never wastes our pain;
    For every loss He sends to us
    Is followed by rich gain.
  • And when we count the blessings
    That God has so freely sent;
    We will find no cause for murmuring
    And no time to lament.
  • For Our Father loves His children,
    And to Him all things are plain;
    So He never sends us “pleasure”
    When the “soul’s deep need is pain.”
  • So whenever we are troubled,
    And when everything goes wrong,
    It is just God working in us
    To make “our spirits strong.”
