Whatever comes to us in life,
Though seemeth good or ill,
We are to take no anxious thought,
For us it is God's will.
Then trust in Him through every trial
He may not understand
If we are His, it followeth
Our times are in His hand
His presence circles all our ways;
His kindly eye doth guide
Together all things work for good
If we in Him abide
"My friend, whatever your cross,
God knows and understands
He lifted it Himself before He
gave it to you.
Don't ever think He doesn't care.
"I do not mind the thorns along
The way my Master chose;
Tis worth a thousand ugly thorns
To find one lovely rose.
