Yet I Will Rejoice


Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the

olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen,

and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my


Habakkuk 3: 17:18

I thought today I would just share the words to this song by Shannon J. Wexelberg


 When the world is up against me

When it seems I’ve lost it all

And my back’s against the wall

When my heart’s grown dry and empty

When the life that I had planned

Is slipping through my hands

I hear sweet music rise above it all

And when it seemed my hope had ended, I was wrong

I have a song

And I’m singing to my Savior

Singing to the One who set me free

I have a song

And my heart will ever praise Him

This world can never take this joy from me

When all else is gone

I have a song

When I cannot see tomorrow

When the questions flood my mind

Looking back on wasted time

When my soul is full of sorrow

When the pain won’t go away

And such brokenness remains

I join the music rising far above it all

It’s an anthem to my true and faithful God

I sing because I’m happy

I sing because I’m free

For His eye is on the sparrow

And I know He watches me!


Lord, You know the things that have come against my family members. You know the sleepless nights this has caused, the tears that have been shed, the anger that has risen over this and the questions that flood their minds. But, You Lord, also know the outcome of these diagnoses, You are constantly watching over them, rising with healing in Your wings over them. Would You cause a new song to rise up in them, a song of freedom, a song of praise to You, a song of joy? You are their Great Physician, their Healer God, their Jehovah Rapha, You took the stripes that brought their healing and I praise You, I thank You for what You are doing in their lives even now. Thank You for their new song, Amen.
