You’re in the Father’s hands now

Sheet music

  1. He bears your suff’ring with you,
    is longing to prepare you
    for everlasting bliss and joy.
    He knows how short your life is,
    so in His loving purpose
    He gives you what brings joy in heaven.
  2. Those who in tears are sowing
    will one day be rejoicing
    before His throne in Zion’s courts.
    Hard paths of night and suffering
    bring forth God’s greatest blessing
    both here and in the life to come.
  3. Those who continue trusting
    in darkest night and suffering
    will see God’s glory evermore.
    Those who endure in darkness
    will see the throne’s bright radiance
    in that celestial city fair.
  4. Those who endure in patience,
    accept God’s will in stillness,
    submitting to His chastening hand,
    will bear one day His likeness,
    His patience and His meekness,
    and share with Him the heavenly throne.
  5. So bear all suffering gladly,
    which God Himself is offering
    to bring true beauty to your soul.
    Then you’ll attain your longing
    to shine above in glory –
    a precious jewel in Jesus’ hand.
