1 The righteous Father knoweth best
Why I a thorny road must take,
And I will bow at His behest,
Tho’ foes assail and friends forsake.
He knoweth best, His will be done.
Sometime I’ll lay my burden down,
To suffer with His blessed Son,
I’ll wear with Him the fadeless crown.
2 The righteous Father knoweth why
His child must meet the pain and loss,
And as the weary years go by,
Must groan beneath a heavy cross. [Refrain]
3 I’ll bear my cross and murmur not,
My Savior suffered much for me,
His precious blood my ransom bought
Upon the mountain Calvary. [Refrain]
