They told the waiting band
"The countryside is marvellous
There's fruit throughout the land
But getting there's impossible
The giants are to great
God's plan is too implausible
There's nothing to debate."
"But wait!" two others shouted
"It might look bleak and grim
But God's with us; what is hard for us
Is mere child's play for Him."
I think you know the story
How they all turned back in fear
They shunned the Father's glory
And meandered forty years
And all because they wouldn't trust
A God who's so much bigger
Than any of their doubting minds
Could ever, ever figure.
At other times, when called to trust
Some men were strong and true
To God they said, "We know its hard
But it's child's play to You."
So Gideon, when sent by God
The Midianites to rout
With just a paltry little squad
Dispersed them with a shout
He saw first hand that what to us
Seems challenging and hard
When seen from heaven's perspective
Is mere child's play to God.
As David faced Goliath
As Paul was thrown in jail
As Daniel faced the lions
As Jesus faced the nails
They all looked up to see them through
God's light made all else dim
They knew what's tough for me and you
Is mere child's play to Him.
So when the trials come your way
And all seems dark and grim
When sunny skies have turned to grey
You're battling to swim
Trust God to all your fears allay
He'll see you through without delay
It's all child's play to Him.
