A Missionary Psalm Canticle I

Missionary Psalm
Canticle I
A Song of Laments

Two things about serving the Lord
Three things about walking with You, O God

Life consists of seasons
Each with it’s own wonders
Each with it’s own challenges
Each with it’s own pain

My heart is tested severely
To see what is really there
Gold and silver endure fire
Everything else burns

The only safe place
In this storm, in the storm
is in the middle
of the Hand
of the Lord Almighty
the Maker of Heaven and Earth

Grab on, O my soul
Strength and Refuge are there
Grab on
Don’t let go.


O, praise the Lord!
Praise Him, my weary soul!
Praise Him in this and all seasons
In the season of many difficulties
In the place of trouble

You are good, O Lord
Your Love prevails
Your Mercies endure
Now and forever

You are good
You ARE good
You are GOOD

Trials and tribulations come, but look up!
The Creator God sees us to safely
Even when I have stumbled,
Your Hand breaks through and
Pulls me

We will walk through these walls
The sunrise of His Kingdom
on the other side
Shining in our eyes
The fresh wind of Your Kindness
Flowing over us

All who walk with You
Will be delivered
will be satisfied in Your Presence
now and forever-more
