No Song

Quote

When we sing praise to God, the joy in our hearts provides the strength we need to carry on.

~ Lisa Blair

Even when I have no song, I’ll praise Him.

I just heard a song with this phrase, and I thought, wow! How many of us find ourselves amid difficulties and so down we have no song in our hearts? Do we look to the Lord and praise Him for who He is in our lives, do we praise Him for walking with us every day of our lives, through good times, and challenging times?

God never leaves us or forsakes us. He never ignores our needs. He is always there for us.

So again, do you praise God even when you do not have a song in your heart? Is your joy the response to external things in your life, or is it internal? Our joy comes from the Lord, our joy ignites our praise to Him.

Nehemiah 8:10 reads, “Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Words and Music by Joel Houston

Verse 1
Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

Chorus 1
Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Verse 2
Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Chorus 2
Even when the fight seems lost
I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Bridge 1
And my heart burns only for You
You are all, You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing ’til the morning has come

Bridge 2
And my heart burns only for You
You are all, You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing ’til the miracle comes

Chorus 3
Even when the morning comes
I’ll praise You
Even when the fight is won
I’ll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
