The Lyrics

I'm laid off of work at the factory
A wife and a newborn's depending on me
I would give my left little pinky in exchange for some help
Ain't no use in feeelin' sorry for myself
Lay-off's en masse, pay-off's of staff
My lady don't smile and baby won't laugh

God understands
God understands
All the burdens and hardship are part of His plans
God understands, God understands

They say I haven't been the same since I've gone back to church
But I would feel better if I had me some work
The more I pray about it I see I was wrong
And now I'm a convict, convictions are strong
I don't want to preach, I want to labor for Him
Thought the almighty dollar's making things grim

God understands
God understands
I will kneel down and pray, when life makes its demands
God understands, God understands

I like going into a closet anytime on bended knee
I'm praying the way for my family
Some say I'm stuck, I say I'm free

I'm flying around like a flutterby
Why bother with the guilt; the Father's on my side
He bore it on the cross and wore a thorny crown
I lift my hands to the heavens with my feet upon the ground
I bask inside His presence and live with no regrets
I'm sure to find another job to feed my fam'ly yet

God understands
God understands
Through all the trials and troubles and weird circumstance
God understands, God understands

God understands
God understands
You gotta trust sometime, so give Him a chance
God understands, God understands
