Hymn Text: The Worth of Trials

Title: The Worth of Trials
Meter: 8 8 8 8 D

1.
If you are cast into the deep,
If flames become your enemy,
If brutal mobs tear your from sleep,
If you are trapped and cannot flee,

Know this—the Lord will consecrate
Each trial for your holy gain
To learn from ev’ry awful fate
As greater faith you then obtain.

2.
If you are cast into the pit,
If you are mocked on ev’ry side,
If winds and storms urge you to quit,
If you are wracked with pain inside,

Know this—the Lord will consecrate
Each trial for your holy gain
To learn from ev’ry awful fate
As greater faith you then obtain.

3.
If fiends conspire to steal your breath,
If armies should oppose your cause,
If you are sentenced unto death,
If Hell itself gapes wide its jaws,

Know this—the Lord will consecrate
Each trial for your holy gain
To learn from ev’ry awful fate
As greater faith you then obtain.

Of what I learned today?

The words I heard today?
They are my mission call,

That with Thy wisdom I may see.

From what I found today?

To those whom I should find and meet.
