657 Trials Call for Faith

Verse 1

When trials come people can be weak,

negative feelings can rise within.

They may lack clarity on the will of God

or the path that’s best for them to practice.


Verse 2

But you must have faith in God’s work, just like Job,

who was weak and cursed his day of birth,

yet didn’t deny that God gives all things

and that He also takes them away.


Chorus

Whatever refinement you suffer from God’s words,

what God perfects is your faith.

When you can’t touch it, and when you can’t see it,

it’s then that your faith is required.


Verse 3

Faith is called for when something can’t be seen.

When it is hidden from the naked eye,

when you can’t let go of your own ideas,

when you don’t know God’s work, have faith!


Verse 4

In the times of hardship, man’s faith must rise.

When refined, his faith must come through.

Only faith makes you see God

and allows God to perfect you.


Chorus

Whatever refinement you suffer from God’s words,

what God perfects is your faith.

When you can’t touch it, and when you can’t see it,

it’s then that your faith is required.

Whatever refinement you suffer from God’s words,

what God perfects is your faith.

When you can’t touch it, and when you can’t see it,

it’s then that your faith is required.

Oh, it’s then that your faith is required.

Yes, it’s then that your faith is required.
