when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he
accepts as a son.”
Hymn: TLH 521, st. 4,6 :
What God Ordains Is Always Good
4. What God ordains is always good.
He is my Friend and Father;
He suffers naught to do me harm,
Though many storms may gather.
Now I may know Both joy and woe,
Some day I shall see clearly
That He hath loved me dearly.
6. What God ordains is always good.
This truth remains unshaken.
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine,
I shall not be forsaken.
I fear no harm, For with His arm
He shall embrace and shield me;
So to my God I yield me.
