Diamond In The Making

Make me my Lord in my trials,
In my challenges my God, mold me.
For in these things you make me perfect,
Into Your image you mold me by them.
Let me not cry over my pain,
In my suffering, may I not complain.
For in these challenges, I am made strong,

Let me stay strong in my tests,
In my hardships, I will persevere.
For great is the victory for enduring,
To persevere brings great reward.
