yet will I sing

I found myself listening to this song from Audra Lynn this morning and it struck me as being so applicable to our recent theme of putting our trust in the Father, so I thought I would just share a YouTube version of it here for your edification. If you can’t watch or listen at the moment, I’ve typed out the lyrics below the video. Enjoy!

Yet Will I Sing – Lyrics

Let this be the only love song I write
May You be the only love in my life

I asked you to draw me
I said I would run
So though I walk through the valley
Yet will I trust

I asked you to call me
I said I would come
So though I go up the mountain
Yet will I run

Though my song be taken from me
Yet will I sing
Yet will I praise You

Though the joy be taken from me
Yet will I laugh
Yet will I shout unto You

Though the light be hidden from me
Yet will I walk
Yet will I run after You

Though my heart be slain within me
Yet will I trust
Yet will I follow You

Cause I know whatever You do
You do through the eyes of mercy
And nothing can be added to it
And nothing can be taken away

There is a time for every purpose under the heavens
So though my weeping may last for the night
Oh, Your joy, it comes with the light

Though my song be taken from me
Yet will I sing
Yet will I praise You

Though my heart be slain within me
Yet will I trust
Tet will I follow after You

  • Thanks for sharing a beautiful song. Always love when music ties into what God’s trying to grow in me. Songs oftentimes stick in my head so much more than devotion readings or sermon messages.

    • Anna! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I snoop in on yours every once and awhile as well to see how you’re doing – I think you and Nicki inspired me to start writing more. Glad to hear you liked the song … it’s definitely true about songs tending to stick with us longer – and when they’re based on truth from the Scriptures, that’s a very good thing. 🙂
