Count It All Joy

Count it all Joy

Count it all joy
Really, Lord?
A smile on the face
when our heart aches?
Not just one trial
but various
to produce endurance
that we may be complete.
Count it all joy
Not fake, but an inner peace
that puts our mind at ease
knowing He has a purpose.
As we persevere
He is near
We will be blessed-
The crown of life
The Lord has promised.
Count it all joy
Jesus did
as His blood shed
Enduring the cross
Despising the shame
Our trials pale
Joy is found in His name.
