This Too Shall Pass

In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
These trying times that are so hard to endure
In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
Hold fast your heart and be assured

[CHORUS:]
This too shall pass
Like every night that’s come before it
He’ll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It’s in His Hands
This too shall pass

The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
The Father knows that sorrow’s heavy chains are strong
But with His strength, you’ll overcome

[REPEAT CHORUS]

So set your eyes upon the mountain
And lift your hands up to the sky
And let His arms of love surround you
And take you to the other side

[REPEAT CHORUS]

If you’ve seen the Tyler Perry movie, Daddy’s Little Girls there’s a church scene in which another Yolanda Adams work is sung, “Step Aside.” I couldn’t find a video of it, but here’s the lyrics.

Step Aside
Yolanda Adams

Hold on and don’t give up
Don’t you worry
You don’t have to cry
Cause He He see’s what you’re going through
Yes Yes he does
God is willing and He is able
This did not catch him by surprise
So just trust him
And just oh step aside
Be still and don’t question it
These obstacles they were allowed
He wants to take you higher and higher
If you will hold on
God is willing and more than able
This did not catch him by surprise
So just trust him
And just step aside
Oh I know he’s faithful
My God is faithful
To do what He said He’ll do
Now if He said just believe it
There’s nothing he can’t do
You must stand on His word (stand on His word)
Put all your cares on him (give them to Him)
Cause He knows and He loves you
He did it for me that why I can say
Step step aside
God can work a miracle for you
Step aside
You got to let go
And let God
And let go and let God be God
Move yourself out of the way
Move your pride out of the way
He’ll never leave you
Nor forsake you
This what I know it ain’t just what I heard
So Thank You Lord for being awesome to me
You’re marvelous
Praise him Praise Him
Oh step aside
Let go let go let go
He knows what you go through
He knows what you can bear
He can do what you can’t do
So step so step so step aside
Thank you Lord
And you’re in control
So I step aside
