When the morning falls
On the farthest hill
I will sing his name,
I will praise him, still.
When dark trials come
And my heart is filled
With the weight of doubt,
I will praise him, still.

For the Lord, our God,
He is strong to save
From the arms of death,
From the deepest grave,
And he gave us life
In his perfect will,
And by his good grace
I will praise him, still.


Oh, what words! How many times do I refuse to praise Him when trials come? How often do I forget that He is good and worthy of praise?

Even during the hardest times of our lives, God is still a good and gracious God. He is still sovereign. He is still perfect. He is still sovereign. Because of these truths, God still deserves and is worthy of the worship and praise and honor and glory we have to offer.

It's amazing to me whenever I see God's providence in the worship services at church. He seems to place the right songs in the right times. This song came on one of the turning points of my life, although I didn't know what exactly that turning point would turn me to. The words of this song by Fernando Ortega challenges me to praise Him still. Will you?
