For My Good
(written by Eddie Robinson)
(recorded by Dottie Peoples & The Peoples Choice Chorale)

 

Verse 1:
I�ve had trials and tribulations,
unexpected situations, living here below.
I�ve had friends to turn their backs on me
and leave me stand in the cold.
I�ve been hurt in church
As I attempted to do God�s work;
by people who called themselves saints.
Many times I felt like giving up,
but the Spirit said you can�t.
You know the Lord, He puts you through
a lot of things you can�t understand,
and for everything He allows there�s a reason.
So in my life the devil gets no glory,
everywhere I go I tell the story;
how God has a way of turning people around.

 

Chorus:
He meant it for my good,
God meant it for my good.
He brought me out without a doubt,
I knew that he would.
Now I know no defeat,
I�m strong when I�m weak;
God gave me a song now I must sing on.
The devil meant it for bad but I�m so glad
God meant it for my good.

Verse 2:
The gossip, the lies, the tears in my eyes
it worked out for my good.
I past the test of time,
like a tree by the water I stood.
Because through it all,
God gets the glory,
everywhere I go I tell the story;
How God worked out things for me.
The devil meant it for bad but I�m so glad
God meant it for my good.
