When God Says, “No.” (Part 2)

audio-concert-hand-33779Yesterday I began this post with Part 1, you can read it here. I explained the story behind today’s post.

Today I am posting the first song that I wrote in a series of songs. It was a very difficult song to write. It came out of sadness and regret after God had said, “No, Stop,” to something I loved.

I hope it encourages you if you are ever feeling low, to give thanks, to praise, to be joyful and to hope. Most of all I encourage you to Sing!

Rejoice for the Lord is near.

Song of Thanksgiving

Oh my soul,

Why so low?

Crushed and broken

On the ground.

Oh my tears,

How you flow.

Fears and mortal enemies,

Sick and sadness

Overwhelm me.

Yet I will sing.

Chorus

This is my song of thanks

To my God and Saviour.

This is my song of praise

This is my song of joy

My song of hope

 

Christ in me the hope of glory

Oh my soul lift your voice

He’s the God of the Angel Armies

And His Anthem is, “Rejoice!”

I have the power of the resurrection

Living in my veins

I have the hope that is the name of Jesus

And I will sing again

Chorus

This is my song of thanks

To my God and Saviour.

This is my song of praise

This is my song of joy

My song of hope

Be encouraged, be blessed. Sing to the Lord a new song today!
