Lyrics

This world is not our home
Through this desert land we roam
Longing to be clothed with heavenly robes

Our bodies waste away
But our hearts renewed each day
Christ's power is displayed in these jars of clay

We are afflicted
We are not crushed
We are perplexed
But we do not despair
Persecuted
But not abandoned
We are struck down
But we are not destroyed

These trials are not worthy
To compare with future glory
Living stones, we are quarried for eternity

We believe God's spoken word
That He who raised Christ our Lord
Will also us restore to life evermore

We are afflicted
We are not crushed
We are perplexed
But we do not despair
Persecuted
But not abandoned
We are struck down
But we are not destroyed

Our hope is in Christ the Lord
Our source of strength and our sure reward
He is with us
He won't forsake us

All we see will pass away
Giving way to brighter days
Victory shall be our song
For Christ our King has overcome

Forsaking all, we count the cost
Eternal gains, temporal loss
Swallowed up shall be our tears
By the joy of our endless years

All we see will pass away
Giving way to brighter days
Victory shall be our song
For Christ our King has overcome

Forsaking all, we count the cost
Eternal gains, temporal loss
Swallowed up shall be our tears
By the joy of our endless years

We are afflicted
We are not crushed
We are perplexed
But we do not despair
Persecuted
But not abandoned
We are struck down
But we are not destroyed

Our hope is in Christ the Lord
Our source of strength and our sure reward
He is with us
He won't forsake us

Our hope is in Christ the Lord
Our source of strength and our sure reward
He is with us
He won't forsake us
