Words for a battered friend

For a friend who has been battered by a few storms as of late:

"Shall I not drink from the cup that He has given me."

Bitter cup though it may be
It is a gift He gives to thee
That thou may truly taste and see
Of all that He has borne for thee

For all is His and all is planned
He's granted this pain to now be manned
Do not let your hope be in this land
But Hope in Him, the great God-Man

Oh would it now and ever be
That His great glories you might see
That from trust in yourself you would flee
And only ever trust in He

A.B. Seal
