He Knows Your Poverty

He Knows Your Poverty

Did you ever wonder why
the King of the sky
would leave Heaven above
come to Earth with love
to join us in our poverty
*
When you run out of money
before the end of the month
and choose between diapers
and gas for work
pawn all of your stuff
for a bag of groceries
*
And you use what you have
for all that you can
cause that is all
that you’ve got
*
And you pray that someday
it won’t be like this
as you tell the kids
no not today
just because
*
He sees all your tears
and collects every one
in a jar up in Heaven
to shower you soon
with blessings instead
of the pain that life brings
*
For the promise He’s given
Do not fear, I’ll provide
when you’re weak,
then I’m strong
Poor in spirit,
you’re blessed
*
so we try to rejoice
consider ourselves worthy
for ours is the
Kingdom of
Righteousness
*
Choosing to believe
All things will
work out for good
There will be
a purpose
for everything
*
Or will you sit back
demand more and more
pay for the death
of your soul
with a life
spent on yourself
*
pretend this is it
take what you can
forgetting His death
and resurrection
*
will you endure
in your pain
will you find love
in the dark
will you choose life
from a cross
can you rejoice
in your suffering
if life here
is not all there is
*
Jesus knows what it’s like
to trade riches for rags
endure hardship
and suffering
*
But He didn’t give up
He came here to save you
Carried out Gods plan
to make all things new
*
His death brings you life
His resurrection brings hope
that out of this pain
something good will come
*
Surely we’ll see the
goodness of God
in the land of the living
He promised, He said
*
And someday soon
in the blink of an eye
We will meet Him
Up in the sky
live in a mansion
streets lined with gold
dance with the Savior
as He welcomes us home
