I'll Praise You in This Storm

Today I'm going to share the lyrics to the Casting Crown's song "I'll praise You in this Storm". If you've read my blog, you know this is my absolute favorite group. This song has been my theme song for the past month or so. We've had a few storms, but my Lord is always there! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


Praise You in This Storm
words by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:
And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

Chorus

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Chorus

Note the words "I'm with you" in the verses. This is what I hold onto. My Lord is always with me, and you as well. No matter the storm in our life, HE is there!!!

Hi Sherry,

I love this song! Casting Crowns is one of my all time favorite bands - I even got to see them in concert once. Amazing! Still, though, I think my favorite song of theirs is "Your Love Is Extravagant". So pretty :)

I just popped over to say hello and thank you for signing up for my giveaway. Good luck!
