Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)

Song based on the Bible verse:
Habakkuk 3:17-18
17 
Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
18 
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

Psalm 103:1-5
1
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:

Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 42:5
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance.

1
Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

Even when my strength is lost I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

2
Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing til the morning has come
Lord my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing ’til the miracle comes
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

3
Even when the morning comes I’ll praise You
Even when the fight is won I’ll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
