How Could God Send These Trials?


How could God send these trials to me?
      How can I pass this test?
It seems more difficult than those
      Allotted to the rest.

How can God hold the universe
      Within His mighty hand,
And yet allow the things that I
      Just cannot understand?

Ah child, if you had confidence
      In God who ruleth all,
You would not let the trials and tests
      Cause you to stumble, fall.

One day when time has ended
      And this earth’s labour’s past,
You’ll understand the reason;
      Rejoice in God, at last.
