I Will Still Love Him

I will love Him, my Lord and Redeemer
Though He slay me still I will trust him
Though he send my soul to hell
I will say, “He is righteous”
If he takes away every thing I have
And my soul breaks in the pit of despair
How can I but love Him
If I die tomorrow and walk the path of the dead
Though I be surrounded by the blackness of gloom
Though I never see His light again
Yet I will say, “I love Him”

He fashioned me as a vessel He made me the way I am
I cannot say, “Why did you make me this way?”- or
“You made a mistake; I wish I was made like another”
I know not the reason He designed me this way
I may be a disposable cup or handcrafted china,
I cannot see what He has planned for me,
The finality, the end of my path
Otherwise I may be lifted up with pride
And start trying to reach that goal by my own power and effort
But he shows me the small steps, I will rejoice in the moment I see
I will trust His judgment, and say “He knows what is best.”

Though all men forsake me, and run away to hide
Though they avoid me in the street, brand me a sinner and an outcast
The ones who once waved palm branches,
That cast their clothes and flowers in my path
Though they mock me and say,  “Do a miracle, prove who you are”
Those to whom I showed compassion and kindness
Though I am despised by those who once called me friend
And accept a kiss by one who has betrayed me
Though in my darkest hour I feel completely alone and forsaken
Though I partake of the sufferings of Christ
I will still love Him, My Saviour, Lord and Redeemer
