Some roads are rough to travel,
And through dusty trails, we’ve run.
We’ve watched as dark clouds covered skies
Abandoned by the sun.
But, anywhere we chance to be,
We know we are secure,
All surely part of God’s great plan
With courage to endure.
For He has made things beautiful,
His gift is in each day.
The worth is ours for spending here,
Look up! He’ll show the way.
And if we follow, God will give
A time to laugh and heal –
To make each moment meaningful,
Embracing all that’s real.
We have a treasure in our lives
Worth more than any gold;
With arms outstretched, He gives His hands
For each of us to hold.
