Encouraging song lyrics.. what I sing to myself when feeling discouraged.

Trading My Sorrows

I'm trading my sorrow
I'm trading my shame
I'm laying it down for the joy of the Lord

I'm trading my sickness
I'm trading my pain
I'm laying it down for the joy of the Lord

Chorus:
And we say yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord Amen

I'm pressed but not crushed persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I'm blessed beyond the curse for his promise will endure
And his joy's gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning

 

He will come and Save You

Say to those who are fearful hearted, "do not be afraid,

the Lord your God is strong, with His mighty arm,

when you call on His name."
  He will come and save

He will come and save you, He will come and save you
    
Say to the weary one, "your God will surely come"
      
He will come and save   you

He will come and save you, He will come and save you
     
Lift up your eyes to Him, you will arise again,
            
He will come and save   you


Say to those who are broken hearted, "
do not lose your faith, the Lord your God is strong, with His loving arms,
when you call on His name."
  He will come and save

He is our refuge in the day of trouble,
He is our shelter in the time of storm,
He is our tower in the day of sorrow,                   
our fortress in the time of war

  2. Oh, my gosh! I love that song. I heard it done by a local band and love it. Those last few lines "Though the sorrow may last for the night, His joy comes with the morning" have gotten me through some rough nights when I thought I'd be depressed forever! Thanks for sharing!
