Singing Until I Actually Believe It

Let the King of my heart

be the mountain where I run

The Fountain I drink from

Oh He is my Song

Let the King of my heart

be the shadow where I hide

the ransom for my life

Oh He is my Song

We’ve been listening to the lyrics. We know they are true, but sometimes it’s hard to sing them, yes? It costs something to sing words that we’ve wrestled mightily with. We believe He’s good, but honestly? It doesn’t feel “good”. It feels so not-good.

You are good

Good

ooh

You are good

Good

ooh

Sometimes we sing these songs over our own hearts because they need to hear our voices say it out loud. We sing them because the person next to us in our worship service needs to see someone who has gone through something painful still believing.

You’re never gonna let me down

You’re never gonna let me down

You’re never gonna let me down. . .

Sometimes the lyrics come as a desperate reminder that we’re counting on our Savior. Jesus, we feel like you have let us down sometimes. Can we sing it from a place of faith that believes when we see the whole picture, you always come through?

I’m so glad I learned to trust thee,

Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend.

And I know that thou art with me;

Wilt be with me to the end.
