Praise You In This Storm

I was listening to my husbands iPod this morning as I was returning home from town and this song came on, Praise You in this Storm, by Casting Crowns.  Now I have listened to this song many many times and I have always loved it.  But you know, some times a song just hits you even if you have heard it a hundred times.  Every time I hear this song, it hits me.  Here are the lyrics and a video of the song.

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
