Divine Doer

"The LORD was with Joseph... And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it... because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper" (Genesis 39:2,22,23).  "LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me" (Psalm 131:1). 

The Lord was with Joseph in prison
And taught him to trust as he should.
Enduring both pain and derision,
God prospered His servant for good. 

God plans for our good in each trial;
We know now it couldn't be truer.
Though troubles endure for awhile,
Our God is the Planner and Doer. 

The Lord is removing our pride
That's traded for humility. 
By fire our hearts may be tried,
Yet thereby the Lord makes us free.

We're lifting to You, Lord, our eyes
To do what You only can do,   
Removing the pride You despise,
As humbly we're trusting in You.
