Through Many Hardships

There are many hardships in this life
Tests that we must endure
When we seek to follow Christ as Lord
Know these will come for sure.
But we know all things work out for the good
In God’s eternal plan
And we know He will wipe away our tears
When Jesus calls us home.

When God calls us and we come to Him
Through Jesus and the cross
It is there when we are born again
We realise the cost.
Jesus calls us to follow in God’s way
To turn from every sin
To forgive everyone for everything
As we have been forgiven.

When we learn to love as God loves us
His ways become more clear
We detest our sin and selfishness
God only we hold dear.
To a world ruined by its sinful self
God gave His only Son
He expects all His own to live like Him
Till Jesus calls us home.

There are many hardships in this life
Tests that we must endure
When we seek to follow Christ as Lord
Know these will come for sure.
But we know all things work out for the good
In God’s eternal plan
And we know He will wipe away our tears
When Jesus calls us home.
