The truth is bitter, so they say
When we yield, happy our way
Very good food, not always sweet
Bitter pills, some ailments treat

To corrections, some lose control
Would have been good for their soul
For reproof, the Bible was given
God corrects, better listen

Paul reproofed Peter lest he strays
Peter’s senior, you would say
The Bible is our final creed
Its instructions we should heed

Trials do come to us sometimes
Victory Christ gives, all the time
If for our faith we dare to stand
We’ll surely get to glory land

When to His will we have yielded
In His service, succeeded
Rewards await us in glory
Gone and past the bitter story
