Our Father Knows Best

Standard

Our Father knows what’s best for us
So why should we complain
We always want the sunshine
But He knows there must be rain

We like the sound of laughter
And the merriment of cheer
But our hearts would lose their tenderness
If we never shed a tear

Our Father tests us often
With suffering and with sorrow
He tests us not to punish us
But to help us meet tomorrow

For growing trees are strengthened
When they withstand the storm
And the sharp cut of the chisel
Gives the marble grace and form

Our Father never hurts us needlessly
And he never waste our pain
For every loss he sends to us
Is followed by a rich again

And when we count the blessings
That God has so freely sent
We will find no cause for murmuring
And no time to lament

For our Father loves his children
And to Him all things are plain
So He never sends us pleasure
When the souls deep need is pain

So whenever we are troubled
And when everything goes wrong
It is just God working in us
To make our spirit strong
