The Refiner


God purifies us, like a Refiner, from dross

Through trials, inner conflict, loss;

We search for understanding in vain

The reasons seem to elude us again and again.


Though He appears not to be around,

We know His wisdom is sound;

These trials are merely to test our faith

ďI am always with youĒ, in the Bible, He saith.


In the Refinerís furnace thus confined

Each soul is strengthened and refined;

As we are established in His perfect mould

He polishes until our character is changed to gold.


So, letís keep walking our Saviourís way

Trusting that His grace is sufficient each day;

Letís seek to obey His Holy Will

Believing that all His promises, He will fulfil.
