You Know, It’s Sunday – Lift My Hands…

Casting Crowns is one of my favorite Christian bands.  A little history, from their website

  • nearly 4.5 million career album sales
  • a GRAMMY Award, an American Music Award, 23 Dove Awards
  • 8 chart-topping radio singles

Casting Crowns remains focused on discipleship through music. With lead singer and songwriter Mark Hall’s 18 years in youth ministry, the band’s message remains rooted in the student services he has led on a weekly basis since 2001.

I like this part the best :

With boldly honest, hard-hitting lyrics, the band continues to challenge, strengthen and pour into the body of Christ, giving listeners a fresh, relevant perspective on loving God and loving people.  Our main purpose, above all else, is to know Him more…

Their song,  Praise You In This Storm, is getting a lot of play time.   It is one that hits close to home right now for me.  With everything on my plate, I’m still struggling to find my way out of where I’m at in my life, all while keeping my eyes and trust on God.

Praise You In This Storm

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.

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

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
