The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,
Blessed be the name of the Lord each day.
For the God who is our ever present help in need
Knows our hearts and cares if we bleed.
Trials can be so challenging and hard.
It’s tempting to make your heart a guard.
So much loss can steal your joy,
It’s hard to be happy over what’s destroyed.
But pray that God will help us keep our tongue
And see us faithfully through till all is done.
He will restore what He has taken from us,
Unless He sees it wasn’t best for us.
I cannot explain why things are as they are.
I just know God cares and is never far.
