Philippians 4:4
"Rejoice in the Lord always:  and again I say, Rejoice. ."

divider

          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;
          In darkness He giveth a song.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.
