In Christ

During our lifetime we experience highs and lows

At times things are so difficult we think nobody knows.

However, there is One who is acquainted with sorrow

In fact, He already knows our every tomorrow.

God Almighty sits on His throne on high

Reigning with all omnipotence and that’s no lie.

Whatever we go through both good and bad

We should rejoice in Christ Jesus being very glad.

Having a heart of gratitude for all that God has to bring

Enables us to count it all joy and we can only but sing.

interestingly, I find that when I’m in the valley feeling so low

Drawing closer to my Savior is much sweeter I know.

God’s love for us exceeds anything we can possibly conceive

Down in the valley our faith grows and we learn to believe.

Considering what Jesus endured while He roamed the earth

No matter what happens to us we can thank Christ for our rebirth.

Who are we to think that we should never have things rough?

God’s only begotten Son went through more than enough.

O’ the precious ointment that drips from God’s loving hand

Gives me such a peace and no matter what in Christ I can stand.
