Lyrics

Who can bend my burdens
And make them beautiful?
Who can bring the healing
To the hurt I hold?
Who else could part the waters
When I’m needing a way?
Though I’m walking through the valley
I’ll believe when You say
I’ll believe when You say

For the good, for the good
You work all things together
For the good, for the good
Your promise stands forever
You alone are my greatest hope
I trust You on the broken road
You work all things together like only You could
For the good

Lord, Your ways are higher
You know Your plans for me
You give purpose and a future
Even when I can’t see
So, I will pray through every heartache
I will cling to this faith
Though I’m walking through the valley
I’ll believe when You say
I’ll believe when You say

For the good, for the good
You work all things together
For the good, for the good
Your promise stands forever
You alone are my greatest hope
I trust You on the broken road
You work all things together like only You could
For the good

Of those who love You, those who love You
For the good
Of those who love You, those who love You

I know You’re working, I know You’re working
I believe, I believe
Good things are coming, good things are coming
I believe, I believe

For the good, for the good
You work all things together
For the good, for the good
Your promise stands forever
You alone are my greatest hope
I trust You on the broken road
You work all things together like only You could
For the good

For the good
(Of those who love You, those who love You)
Yeah

I know You’re working, I know You’re working
I believe, I believe
Good things are coming, good things are coming
I believe, I believe
I know You’re working, I know You’re working
I believe, I believe
Good things are coming, good things are coming
I believe, I believe

About This Song

"'For the Good'" is based upon one of my favorite Bible verses of all time, Romans 8:28 saying, `all things work together for the good for those who love God and are called according to His purposes.' It's a powerful reminder of how God is sovereign behind every circumstance we go through. This verse has brought my family and myself so much comfort over the past couple of years, as not only we've walked through a tough time as a family, but as we've watched the world around us change. Never so much before have we needed the promise that God is working things together for the good. I hope this song encourages you and reminds you, no matter what season you're walking through, that God is with you and for you."
