Rejoice in the Lord Misc. Gospel
[C]God never [Am]moves without [Dm]purpose or [G7]plan
When [Em]trying His [Am]servant and [Dm]molding a [Em]man.
Give [C]thanks to the [Am]Lord though your [Dm]testing seems [G7]long;
In [F]darkness He [G7]giveth a [C]song.
[C]O rejoice in the [Am]Lord. He [Dm]makes no mis-[G7]take.
He [C]knoweth the [Am]end of each [Dm]path that I [G7]take.
For [Am]when I am [Em]tried and [F]puri-[Fm/D]fied,
[C/G]I shall come [G]forth as [C]gold.
I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.
Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.
