God was good to Noah;
H spared his very life.
Though Noah had to handle
Others snickers, laughs and strife.

God was good to Daniel;
He kept him safe and sound.
Though they threw him to the lions;
Though they tossed him to the ground.

God was good to Joseph;
Though his brothers' hate was strong.
He was given a place of honor
To help his kin along.

God was good to Job;
Though to Satan he was tossed.
He gave him ten times over
All possessions he had lost.

God is good to all of us;
Though sometimes we have strife.
Let's praise His precious, loving Name
For everlasting life.
