God didn’t say we’d understand
Each thing that He allows,
Or that we’d always see His hand
And know the why’s and how’s.
But He has said He’s always near
And that He’ll bring us through,
That He will catch each falling tear
And strengthen and renew.
And He has said He’ll turn to good
The things His children face;
Since Jesus in temptation stood
He gives sufficient grace.
So when we cannot understand
The troubles of today,
We simply need to trust His hand
And He will make a way.
