On paths of suffering

Sheet music

  1. I praise Your name, O Lord,
    “Yes-Amen” evermore,
    although I can not understand.
  2. God’s will is goodness
    and loving-kindness.
    Good are the ways He leads His own.
  3. I’ll suffer gladly.
    This will prepare me
    to dwell in glory evermore.
  4. On earth I’ll ever
    stay by my Saviour,
    who bore His cross to Calvary.
  5. Yes, I will follow
    the paths of sorrow
    marked by Your cross, O dearest Lord.
  6. “Heed not the suffering,
    wait for the harvesting”
    shall be my motto evermore.
  7. “Dying” is gain to me,
    for through it I will be
    an heir of glory without end.
  8. So I will suffer,
    Jesus to offer
    a gift to soothe His wounded heart.
  9. Suff’ring will end one day
    and be forever changed
    to light and joy at Jesus’ throne.
  10. Then with my Saviour
    I’ll dwell for ever
    and reign in glory at His side.
  11. So praise the suffering,
    our souls preparing
    for great reward in heaven above.
