Let it die

Let it die 
by Joel Howard

"So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe, the robe of many colors that he wore. And they took him and threw him into a pit." Genesis 37:23-24, ESV

Joseph in the well, let it die, let it die; 
Left for dead then sold by your brothers, by your kin
Sold into a world far away, far away; 
Gone are distant memories of how things had been! 

O dreamer, stay right where you lay 
Your day will come but today is not that day 
Faithfully walk through the fire you're in 
And in time, and by God's help, you will win! 

Let it die - Your ambition to arrive right now 
Let it fall - discontentment over it all 
Let it burn - into something that God can mold 
He does all things well in His time, I'm told 

Don't be afraid to sigh - but, Joseph, let it die
