Lyrics : Why Should We Be Surprised
Why should we be surprised,   if trials come our way
Why should we be surprised, if we suffer for His name
For suffering and persecution, are for those He accepts as sons
Suffering and persecution is how He disciplines those He loves.
 
Chorus:   
He is God,   He is our Father
He knows what’s best for us, all that we need
Like the potter with the clay, us alone, He can mold and shape
To bring forth a harvest of righteousness and peace.
 
It’s not pleasant at the time, discipline never is
But it’s the only way, we will be like Him
We are called to share in His sufferings, we’re called to stand the test
It’s for our own good, so we can share in His holiness
 
His sufferings don’t include sickness and disease
For Jesus bore them all when He died upon the tree
Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father up above
He builds up, He does not destroy, when He disciplines those He loves.
 
So we should not lose heart when trials come our way
Nor should we be discouraged when we suffer for His name
For we know that as we suffer, He’ll purge our lives of sin
Then from glory unto glory we’ll grow up to be like Him.
