Been makin’ lemonade out of lemons
for the last three years
Even tried painting like Monet
with all these tears

Groping for the joy of the Lord
to help keep me steady
But somehow when preparing
one is never ready

When you’re not sure
how the story’s going to end
But you keep on hoping
trying not to pretend

That you’re really trusting God
while trying to be still
Saying “Nevertheless”
as your heart begins to fill

With whatever His will
shall ultimately be
Even in those tears
you simply cannot see

Through Faith’s eyes
peering into your spirit
You’ve got the answer
now you can hear it

No matter the outcome
however, we conceive…
He knows what’s best for us
and in this, we must believe.
