Those who toil for the Lord,
Those who weep bitter tears;
The Lord will lift them up
And they will sing songs of joy.
During hard times they stood,
The hand of God held them.
Soon they will see the harvest,
And know their great reward.
Their doubts were conquered,
Their faith now remains forever.
They have walked through the fire
And God protected their path.
Remember Sarah, she laughed.
But the Lord’s promise was true.
What Sarah thought was impossible
Sarah soon found as a blessing.
As we face our trials in this world
We may feel battered and bruised.
God is faithful, God knows your pain.
Trust in Him and victory you will obtain.
