'Tis Good to Know

Life is never going to be perfect. But it's truly good to know whom we have holding our hand.

‘Tis good to know amidst all earthly woe
That God’s great wisdom hath ordained it so;
And with a father’s love He stays His hand
That all who live beneath His dear command
Shall not be overcome by what’s bestowed.

When hardships strike the heart and crush the soul,
‘Tis good to know our God is in control;
And if He did allow the tears to flow,
His love, in greater measure, shall we know,
For in His arms, all wounds shall be made whole.

When expectations loom unfairly high,
‘Tis good to know our God is ever nigh;
And even if by earthly rules we fail,
It is His will that shall at end prevail,
And to His will alone we need comply.

Unparalleled by anything we face
‘Tis the sweet comfort of His warm embrace;
And when the weary shadowlands we leave,
No more to cry, to toil, to weep, to grieve,
‘Tis good to know we’ll reach a better place.
