The world will see how with me God has dealt
How do I profit while yet in pain?
The sorrows of my life, are they for my gain?
The chastening of the Lord seeks my welfare,
When He tries me through, I know He cares
The sorrow of my life may beat me down,
The devil may pronounce me a clown,
Yet my Father knows what He’s doing,
To be more fruitful, I’m going through pruning
And the day will come when His work will be done,
For He never leaves what He started undone,
The world will see how with me God has dealt,
When His love and power through my life will be felt
For I know that He has a noble cause
And His eye from me shall not depart,
And song of joy now fills my soul,
God will complete in me what He did start.
