God Wants to Hear You Sing

Yesterafternoon, my back was hurting,
so I decided to go upstairs and listen to some music
while applying accupressure to relieve it.
I decided to try a new cd

so I went through some cds we had and came across
an album called "We Preach Christ" by Westcoast Baptist College.
So I put it in and was really enjoying it.
Then when it came to number 7, it really spoke to my heart

and it brought tears to my eyes.
This was a really good song, and now I'm catching
myself singing it constantly since yesterday!


Here are the words below...
(and at the bottom of the post is a link
for a brief clip of the song)


God Wants to Hear You Sing


Their chains were fastened tight
down at the jail that night;
Still, Paul and Silas would not be dismayed.
They said it's time to lift our voice;
Sing praises to the Lord.
Let's prove that we will trust Him, come what may.


(Chorus)
God wants to hear you sing
When the waves are crashing round you,
When the fiery darts surround you,
When despair is all you see.
God wants to hear your voice
When the wisest man has spoken,
And says your circumstance is as hopeless as can be:
That's when God wants to hear you sing.


He loves to hear our praise
On our cheerful days;
When the pleasant times outway the bad by far.
But when suffering comes along,
And we still sing Him songs;
That is when we bless the Father's heart.

(chorus)
God wants to hear you sing
When the waves are crashing round you,
When the fiery darts surround you,
When despair is all you see.
God wants to hear your voice
When the wisest man has spoken,
And says your circumstance is as hopeless as can be:
That's when God wants to hear you sing.




Such beautiful words, aren't they?
How much the Lord deserves our praise in
the good times, as well as through the trials.
We never have to worry that He's not there,
or wonder if He still loves us. He is and does!
He's always there when we're ready to turn to Him,
He wants to hold us and comfort us,
He wants us to enjoy an abudant life,
at peace in Him, while serving Him.
He is SO good to us and deserves our continual praise!

"I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being."
