Sometimes I do not know what to say. Sometimes I do not know what to pray. So I sing. Here are a few songs to lift your heart today and encourage you to know that even when things are tough, God is still in control.
I cast all my care upon Him.
I lay all of my burdens down at His feet,
And anytime I don't know what to do,
I will cast all my care upon Him.
(based on I Peter 3: 7)
I will bless the Lord at all times,
His praise shall continually be in my mouth,
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord,
The humble shall hear thereof and be glad,
Oh magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together,
I sought the Lord and He heard my cry,
And delivered me from all my fears.
(based on Psalm 34)
He that dwelleth in the secret place
Of the most High,
Shall abide, shall abide,
Under the shadow of the Almighty.
Whom have I in heaven but Thee,
And thee is none upon the earth that I desire beside Thee.
My flesh and my heart faileth,
But God is the strength of my heart,
And my portion forever.
(based on Psalm 73:25)
They that go down to the sea,
That do business in great waters,
These see the work of God,
And the wonders in the deep,
He raiseth up the stormy the winds,
And lifts the waves thereof,
From the heavens to their depths again,
Their souls melt in their trouble;
But when they cry unto the Lord,
He saves them from distress,
He reaches down and comforts them,
He gives them peace and rest.
Then are they glad for quiet;
He brings them to His haven,
Oh that men would praise the Lord,
For His goodness and His love.
(based on Psalm 107:23-31)
Thou wilt keep Him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee,
Trust in the Lord forever and ever,
For in the Lord is everlasting strength.
(based on Isaiah 26:3-4)
Do you not know, have you not heard,
The Lord is the everlasting God,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
He shall not grow tired or weary.
And His understanding knoweth no fathom,
He gives strength to the weary,
And increases the power of the weak.
Why do you say, o, Jacob,
And complain, o, Israel,
Thy way is hidden from the Lord.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
Young men stumble and fall,
But they that wait on the Lord,
Shall renew their strength,
They shall soar on wings as eagles
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not be faint.
(Based on Isaiah 40:27-31)
