THERE’S SUFFERING IN HIS FOOTSTEPS (A Song of Comfort)

DominoThere’s suffering in the footsteps of Jesus There’s suffering for you and for me Let His steps leave an imprint upon your heart Joy from tears will then bless all who see Chorus One touch and you’ll fall Fall into His waiting arms Let hands of sorrow Meet hands of joy He’ll lead you through Lead you through Troubled times With much rejoicing One step … just one step May contain much pain or a little We cannot choose our suffering Whether our faith is very strong or brittle Chorus One touch and you’ll fall Fall into His waiting arms Let hands of sorrow Meet hands of joy He’ll lead you through Lead you through Troubled times With much rejoicing Believe … believe Believe in each step taken Let’s go One step … faith Freedom Abounds In This Hope Two steps … faith and hope For wonders hidden and yet to be seen Three steps … faith, hope and now love Give all to Him who in love was forsaken Faith and hope and love are given Now we must give to him All that we are And all that’s been given Faith and hope and love Chorus One touch and you’ll fall Fall into His waiting arms Let hands of sorrow Meet hands of joy He’ll lead you through Lead you through Troubled times With much rejoicing The days won’t always be sunny Stormy clouds will shadow lost horizon But hope, it shines brilliantly through waiting darkness When suffering is shared and glorified in the Son Chorus One touch and you’ll fall Fall into His waiting arms Let hands of sorrow Meet hands of joy He’ll lead you through Lead you through Troubled times With much rejoicing “And now abideth faith, hope, charity (love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love)”. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV) © 2013 – Present Liana Wendy Howarth

  1. This line is especially true: We cannot choose our suffering. Only He knows exactly what our suffering has to be in order to teach us that He is our All in All. If it were left to us to choose, we’d take the easiest way out.
