Pruning Knife


There are times in the Christian life
When we see God take the pruning knife
And hear him on the stone to grind
But trust the wise one and know Heís kind


We know we are about to lose,
But in faith and true submission
We allow Him to choose
The limb or branch
He deems must go
And trust he sees what we donít know

And rest assured that
Should He cut or break
He always does it for
A greater goodness sake.
