Prepared for what’s in store.

He refines me through the waiting when days seem long and dry,

Removing all the dross and rust for the blessing all but nigh,

So in the moments when it seems that everything is loss,

Still I am victorious by His triumph on the cross!

Let my heart rejoice in the Lord who dwells on high,

Though outwardly I groan, His blessings will not pass me by,

With joyful song I lift up praise in the spirit with my voice,

For the Lord has determined to do me good, oh, let my heart rejoice!

May Lord Jesus Christ have all the glory!
