867. Troubles into Treasures

1 As you journey day by day with Jesus,
You will meet with problems hard to face;
If you’re stuck, just ask your Friend to help you,
He will give you problem-solving grace.

He will turn your troubles into treasures,
He will turn your sorrows into joy,
Don’t be down, for He is surely giving
Happiness to every girl and boy.

2 Do you say your trials seem unending,
And your troubles seem so very big?
But with God a mountain is a molehill,
And the strongest stump is but a twig. [Refrain]

3 You will go through days that bring you sorrow,
Many things may try to get you down,
But God uses rain to make a rainbow,
And He’ll use the thorns to make a crown. [Refrain]

4 Take your troubles to the throne of Heaven,
There you’ll see them through the Savior’s eyes;
He can make the most of every moment;
He can shrink your problems down to size. [Refrain]
