I sometimes wonder why, Lord,
You allow the things You do.
Is it because You know it draws us
Closer, Lord, to You?
So many times I’ve seen it, Lord –
That those who taste the fire,
Have found a deeper faith in You,
A passion stronger, higher.
And You have promised, Lord, that we
Need never walk alone;
For You’ll be right there with us even
On the roughest road.
So even though I may not see
The purpose in Your plan,
I won’t keep asking “why, Lord?"
I’ll just take hold of Your hand.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
  Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.
Isaiah 55:8
