Why Does It Seem Like?

Why does it seem like
that those who are wrong
Get away with their sin
And can even sing a song
As if all with them was right
And most like to go along?
They have all the money
And are very headstrong.
Why does it seem like
for those who are wrong?

Why does it seem like
that the ones who do right
Are constantly troubled
With care and; although, contrite
When they have done wrong
They still go through a blight?
They have all the trouble
And can even, of God, lose sight.
Why does it seem like
for those who are right?

Why does it seem like
that there is so much sorrow
In the lives of godly ones
Who serve the Lord and know
How God will change their lives
And make the best to show?
They trust in Him and learn
To do His will and grow
Why does it seem like
for those who suffer sorrow?

Why does it seem like
that His sovereign grace knew
What we would need here
In this life to make it through
When things were too tough
Isn’t this really the clue?
We must learn to depend on Him
He will help us ever anew.
Why does it seem like?
Because His sovereign grace knew.
