Behind the song: Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me.

When sorrow comes and my heart knows
The weight of God’s most crushing blows,
My soul would faint, my faith would sink
If left to what I feel or think.
My soul will hope, my faith will stand
In knowing that it was His hand:
My Father’s love and sov’reign pow’r
Designed my worst and darkest hour.

I rest in knowing He’s the one
who sends the clouds that block the sun.
For He grows faith through bouts with pain
as flowers blossom from the rain.
In this my bout with pain is won:
that He has claimed me as His Son
and does as ev’ry father should—
He gives the gifts He knows are good.

No depth below, nor height above
could ever keep me from Your love.
For since You gave Your Son to bleed,
You will supply my ev’ry need.
O Lord, Your gracious help I seek,
remember that my flesh is weak.
O Father, give me eyes to see
that You work only good for me.
