looking for the lyrics of This Prison Has A Purpose

Post by pianokitten91 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:37 pm

I need the lyrics to "This Prison Has A Purpose" by the Cupps.

The chorus says:
This prison has a purpose though you can't see it now. You may learn something in this trial to help someone who's down.
God may be bringing you down low so He can set you high.
He may be teaching you to praise Him when you really want to cry.
This prison has a purpose, you may not understand, but keep calling on His name and keep holding to His hand.

I have found other lyrics to their songs on here, so, somebody must know this song. I really need them. I have somewhere I have to sing this song at.

Thanks!!!

I found the lyrics & here they are if anyone else wants them:

Verse 1:
Joseph was in prison, no fault of his own.
He tried to do things right, but everything went wrong.
His prison had a purpose that Joseph could not see.
When famine hit the land he fed his family.

Chorus:
This prison has a purpose though you can't see it now. You may learn something in this trial to help someone who's down.
God may be bringing you down low so He can set you high.
He may be teaching you to praise Him when you really want to cry.
This prison has a purpose, you may not understand, but keep calling on His name and keep holding to His hand.

Verse 2:
Now Paul was kept in prison throughout his ministry
For spreading news of Jesus to those who would believe.
His prison had a purpose Paul never even knew,
All the letters that he wrote are still teaching me and you.

Repeat chorus

Bridge:
Someday He just might use you to sustain your family
Or to tell some poor, lost sinner how a soul can be set free.
Right now it feels He's left you all alone out on a limb.
But this prison has a purpose maybe just to keep you close to Him.

Repeat chorus
