Key of C

CGod never Ammoves without Dmpurpose or G7plan
When Emtrying His Amservant and Dmmolding a Emman.
Give Cthanks to the AmLord though your Dmtesting seems G7long;
In Fdarkness He G7giveth a Csong.


O re

Cjoice in the AmLord. He Dmmakes no mis-G7take.
He Cknoweth the Amend of each Dmpath that I G7take.
For Amwhen I am Emtried and Fpuri-Fm /Dfied,
C /GI shall come Gforth as Cgold.

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.

    LOVED this song from the first time I heard it. Thank you for posting Ron Hamilton’s work of art based on Phil. 4:4, written after his eye was removed due to cancer… and his gratitude allowed his loss to transform by God’s grace and it launched his worldwide career as “Patch the Pirate”, encouraging children (and their families) to trust and obey God regardless of circumstances, feelings, or others’ opinions. It sure helped me cope with my parents’ divorce.
