Pain and suff’ring, be like Jesus
Who from our sins He did free us.
Complications, not vacations,
Is our status, is what frees us.
“How so,” you may ask, “Do now tell
How our suff’ring frees us from hell?”
In our suff’ring die now to sin
So that vict’ry in Christ you’ll win.
Share with Jesus in His suff’rings,
Give our lives to Christ as off’rings.
Humble ourselves before our Lord,
Obey Him all in one accord.
Jesus put sins to death with Him
So we might die to sin with Him.
Share in death now with Him to sin,
Follow Him now in obedience.
When we suffer, call out to Christ.
When we suffer we should realize
We are weak, in need of Jesus,
Who from our sins he can free us.
Pain and suff’ring can be our friends,
Teach us to on God to depend.
Make us humble, teach us His grace,
So that one day we’ll see His face.
