Trials by fire

PROVERBS 17:3 CRUCIBLE FOR SILVER
AND THE FURNACE FOR GOLD,
BUT THE LORD TESTS THE HEART

JOB 23: 10   WHEN HE HATH TRIED ME,
I SHALL COME FORTH AS GOLD.



When life deals its shattering blows;

The wrenching pain within us grows

The storm-wracked night is so long

When it seems all hope is gone.

Our heart lies broken like crystal shards of shattered glass.

The night does pass and dawn does break.

Forever altered is our state.

In the deep dark night of soul

We find that You do make us whole.

A fiery furnace burns away

The things of life that cannot stay.

All the dross is burnt away and the gold is here to stay.
