Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: As Long As You Are Glorified

This song has spoken greatly to my heart in these last few months, and I hope it will speak to yours.

In times of economic crisis, job loss, food shortages, and struggles, particularly for a country that has (all too often) put its trust in the wallet and in the filling of the belly, a song like this is all the more necessary and well-suited. You may want to scroll down to my music box at the bottom of this screen and listen to the song as you read through the lyrics.


AS LONG AS YOU ARE GLORIFIED
~by Sovereign Grace

Shall I take from Your hand Your blessings
Yet not welcome any pain
Shall I thank You for days of sunshine
Yet grumble in days of rain
Shall I love You in times of plenty
Then leave You in days of drought
Shall I trust when I reap a harvest
But when winter winds blow, then doubt

Oh let Your will be done in me
In Your love I will abide
Oh I long for nothing else as long

As You are glorified

Are You good only when I prosper
And true only when I’m filled
Are You King only when I’m carefree
And God only when I’m well
You are good when I’m poor and needy
You are true when I’m parched and dry

You still reign in the deepest valley
You’re still God in the darkest night



"You know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." ~James 1:3-4

This song has been so special to me as well. We sang it at my church the Sunday after my husband and I had a miscarriage and it was so encouraging to me. God is so good and continues to be God and does whatever he pleases. It is hard to see pain, but it is so amazing to see God glorify himself through it.
