In every test In every trial
Mercy wins Mercy wins

Prayer with Thanksgiving
Instead of worry
Will bring a peace to my longing heart

I will rejoice
I will rejoice
Always in all things
I will rejoice

Mercy wins Mercy wins
In ever dark storm Mercy wins
You will not leave me Helpless at all
In every test In every trial

He Has Been Merciful to Me

Through all of my struggles
And all of my pains
Through all of my heartaches
And all of my days
Through life’s hardest battles
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His love
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

Through troubles in marriage
That caused me to cry
Through loss of a job
Twenty years left behind
Through every trouble
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

I’ve battled through cancer
I’ve battled through pride
I’ve battled through sin
Long settled inside
Losing a finger
Or a shoulder that hung
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

Don’t Be Distracted

When I am down and weary
And life seems like just a fight
There’s only one thing that revives me
One thing that will make things right

I summon up all that’s within me
I make up my mind to change course
Then way down deep in my spirit
I hear a resounding noise

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
In any dark time or stormy sea
I will praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
Nothing can keep the words in my mouth
I will praise the Lord

The next time you’re in a battle
The next time your mood is down
Just make up your mind to praise Him
Relief will quite soon be found

Praise the Lord
You should just praise the Lord
Don’t be distracted by things in your life
You should just praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
Let’s all just praise the Lord
When we lift Him up He lifts us up too
Let’s all just praise the Lord

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Don’t Be Distracted

Your Grace Abounds

Through deepest valleys and darkest days
Through all my trials and through my pain
Through every storm and all my fears
Your grace abounds to me

Through days of sorrow and sleepless nights
Through shattered hopes and tears of plight
Through times alone when my peace is gone
Your grace abounds to me

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there

Through every heartache and every tear
Through every putdown that I might hear
Through deep depression when I am down
Your grace abounds to me

And when my trials seem more than I can bear
I know your grace will always find me here
If I just keep a watchful eye
You’ll satisfy every time

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there
Your grace abounds to me

Through the Storm

I come to you down on my knees
Hoping you will hear my plea
Ease my suff’ring ease my pain
So I can praise you once again

You speak to me so plain and clear
Making sure that I will hear
When you praise me through the storm
I will rescue you from harm

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

I rise up from my knees in haste
I lift my voice in grateful praise
Your word has spoken to my heart
From your praise I’ll not depart

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
Praise to you I sing

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

That’s When Jesus Calls

In the midst of your troubles when life seems so hard
You try to find rest but don’t get very far
Life just seems so messed up wherever you are
That’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of the pain and illness you face
All of your body seems out of place
One thing or another makes your health a waste
That’s when Jesus calls

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

When it seems that we’re in the worst battles of life
And wherever we turn it just adds to our strife
That’s when we have to give praise we’re alive
For that’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of struggle
Mercies are all new
In the midst of struggle
His grace still blesses you
In the midst of struggle
Be careful what you do
This is the best time to praise His name

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

By Faith

I thank you for the faith Lord
That you have given me
In all my deepest valleys
This faith has lifted me
When I have faced a battle
This faith has seen me through
When mountains loom before mefaith
This faith knows what to do

When I was just a wee lad
You gave this faith to me
I fell through broken ice Lord
Was drowning underneath
My best friend threw a branch Lord
You have me faith to reach
He pulled me out to safety
This faith had rescued me

Through teen years into twenties
I drifted for from you
I thought I’d lost this faith Lord
It seemed I forgot you
But one day faith arose in me
I prayed a prayer so true
I asked you to come in my heart
My soul was now rescued

Two years later I came ba k
To visit my best friend
Through faith you led me to a girl
My life you did suspend
I left my job and traveled back
To start up a new life
By faith I left my world behind
This girl became my wife

By faith we’ve gone through battles
Some scars are very deep
We’ve clung to hope in you Lord
Our souls you always keep
When every battle turns out good
We know you have supplied
By faith we once again dug in
And you have given life

Then cancer came to test us
And tried to bring us down
Our trust in you has risen
By faith we’ve overcome
Now we know forever
No matter what may come
If we just walk with you Lord
You’ll bring us safely home

Thank you for the faith Lord
That you have given me
When I look back on my life
It’s blessings I do see
And when I face the trials
That may come down my way
I’ll simply use this faith Lord
To make it through the day

He is Fair, He is Just, He is Good

I know that we all go through our struggles
At times we feel that God misunderstood
But we always must remember He us with us
He is fair
He is just
He is good

I have had those times when things seem so useless
Things just don’t turn out the way we think they should
Remember He is with me in the valley
He is fair
He us just
He is good

He is fair He is just He is good
He is fair He is just He is good
When I may not understand
He still holds me in His hand
He is fair He is just He is good

The next time you are caught up in your problems
When you’ve done all that you can and then you stood
Look to Jesus who will never leave you helpless
He is fair
He is just
He is good

He is fair He is just He is good
He is fair He is just He is good
When I may not understand
He still holds me in His hand
He is fair He is just He is good

That Wand’ring Spirit

There are times that I get caught up in the battle
My enemies will come to taunt and shout
It seems my situation will defeat me
And all that taunting starts to grow my doubt

Then I hear a voice so gently come and whisper
It’s the voice of my dear Savior calling me
My son do not be troubled by the trial
It’s there to make you all that you can be

I let this trial come so you would trust me
No matter what the circumstances bring
If you will just determine to go through it
You’ll find that soon your soul will dance and sing

I’ll give you strength to hold up under pressure
I’ll give you hope to come and light the way
I’ll give you joy and peace to calm your spirit
And you will see the victory one day

I slowly heard the voice of doubt go weaker
The taunting want it’s evil way as well
The only voice I heard no was my Savior
Guiding me out of that wand’ring spell

The trouble quickly faded into nothing
As I determined I would trust His word
I knew that I had grown a little stronger
The next storm would not throw as much a curve

He gave me strength to hold up under pressure
He gave me hope to come and light the way
He gave me joy and peace to calm my spirit
I now I see the victory today

Forever Love

He loves us always
Yes it is true
Forever His love
Abides with you

Through sunshine and rain
His love abides
Through sorrow and pain
His love does not hide

When difficult times
Come in like a flood
His love will be there
Always enough

When i feel defeated
When my hope is gone
His love will hold me
And bring me along

When heartache has touched me
When life disappoints
His love will uplift me
His spirit anoints

There’s no situation
His love will not win
Forever His love
Is settled within
