in all thy trials, experiences and testing;
lies such beauty as like gold refining.
in every difficulty lies a good treasure;
to share with another, the precious measure,
of the wondrous faithfulness of thy lover King.
with praises and worship, the voices ring!
for the ugly things shall be renewed,
beauty from Christ, a revelation anew.
for it is good for the afflicted to be healed,
for it births testimony and dreams fulfilled.
the love of Christ, so great and so wide;
the cross draws you back to His side.
