Thank You Lord

And I thank you Lord
For the trials that come my way
In that way I can grow each day
As I let You lead

And I thank you Lord
For the patience those trials bring
In the process of growing
I can learn to care

But it goes against the way I am
To put my human nature down
And let the Spirit take control of all I do
Coz when those trials come
My human nature shouts the things to do
And God’s soft prompting can be easily ignored

But I thank You Lord
With each trial I feel inside
That You’re there to help, lead and guide
My way from wrong

Coz You promised Lord
That with every testing
That Your way of escaping is easier to bear

Yes, I thank You Lord
For the victory that growing brings
In surrender of everything
Life is so worthwhile

And I thank You Lord
That when everything’s put in place
Out in front I can see Your face

And it’s there You belong
