Hebrews 12:2 - Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (NIV)
God is in control...
Don't you know?
We're held in the palm of His hand.
There is never a day
That He won't show...
The way for His children to stand.
He's authored our faith
He gave His decree's
Though we may not always understand.
God will work it out
Of this we are sure
When we live our lives by His command.
Let us not grow weary
He'll finish His work
As we take hold of all God has planned.
Joy is a gift
Deeply rooted in faith
When we're fixed on the Promised Land.
For the Joy of the Lord
Is the strength in our lives.
And a commitment of faith it demands.
