As Long as You Are Glorified

February 16, 2009

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.
So quiet my restless heart, quiet my restless heart,
Quiet my restless heart in You.
-words and music by Mark Altrogge
