Without These Times

My soul is heavy,
My heart breaking.
In the pain I feel I pray,
The path I am on,
The one You have chosen,
Lord, so full of hurt and strife,
Times of grief and sorrow.
Without these, Lord, how am I to know,
The grace which You have shown,
The love You so freely give.
Lord, in the trials that come,
I praise Your name.
For my imperfections and mistakes,
I thank You.
For the pain I feel,
The grief I may know,
You are blessed.
For without these times,
Your love and kindness cannot be known.
