The Common Thread
There is a thread
That finds its way into every human life.
Its the common thread;
Interwoven with the warp and woof of life.
There is a dread
Of the common thread of human pain and strife.
It's a common thread;
Interwoven within every human life.
No man escapes the common thread;
It comes to one and all.
It's the common thread;
The essence of the warp and woof of life.
It's the common thread, approached with dread
That causes the most pain;
But the common thread
When once embraced, will bring to us much gain.
1 Peter 4:12 - 13 (NKJ) "Beloved do not think it strange
concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some
strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that
you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is
revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy."
