Tried and Tested
The Saviour's with us through it all
Yet how hard it is to trust His word,
We slip, stumble and we fall.
Like gold tested and finally purified
In the goldsmiths expert hand
We too have to endure the test
With grace alone to help us stand.
The furnace so hot and fiery,
The metal twists and bends
The trial so difficult to endure
He knows. His Spirit He sends.
To lovingly help and mold us,
Guide us along the way
Supreme Comforter and Counselor
You protect us from going astray.
Help us know why God gave the trial,
Make us understand its for our best
Reach deep within our very souls
Gives us peace, comfort and rest.
As the fire burns, the metal melts
Conforming to the goldsmiths design
Our souls pass through life's hardest test
We come out transformed - only thine!
