964. In the Furnace of Thy Love

1 Why should a mortal man complain
At his trials in this wicked world?
Nay, let us thank God’s holy name
For all His love o’er us unfurled.

Refrain:
O Jesus, bear our souls above
Each wave of trouble that we meet;
Then in the furnace of Thy love
We’ll sing Thy praise with joy complete!

2 Oh, why should anyone oppressed
Forget the promise of our God!
To thee each providence is blest
If in love thou bear the chast’ning rod. [Refrain]

3 Oh, who would cast away the gold
We’ve gathered in the furnace flame!
And who would wish again the dross
Here purged in our Redeemer’s name? [Refrain]
