Yet will I praise Thee

Yesterday at cell, I shared about what we had been going through over the past week.

(...was it really only last week that it all happened? A lot has changed since then...)

I thought I would be fully calm and composed by now. But in the midst of the sharing, I couldn't stop the choking feeling in my throat as I recounted the chain of events and affirmed God's faithfulness through it all. Truly He has been my strength. And truly I have been riding on the wings of prayers of many loved ones these past couple of weeks.

For yesterday's worship, I chose one of my favourite songs "Yet Will I Praise Thee" which the familiar refrain is repeated throughout Psalm 42... "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Saviour and my God"



...My tears have been my food day and night,
while men say to me all day long,
"Where is your God?"...

...Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?


Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God...


Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.

By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.


I say to God my Rock,
"Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I go about mourning...

...Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?


Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God
.
