All Done in His Name
Like the turning colors of the leaves
I accept my seasons;
Knowing God gave me Joy, despair,
All for his perfect reasons.
And just like the sun will shine
It must surely set;
Rainbows in the sky
Help me not to forget.
That storms will often rise
But if I place my faith in Thee;
My seasons, the sun’s shining and setting,
It’s all a part of his harmony.
So I embrace my Joy with gladness
