Blessings – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Laura Story’s Blessings is right on the margins of being a song for congregational singing, but the lyrics are strong and reflect a theme that is not represented enough in songs for Christians.
It does not have a fast tempo which means that it could be sung by a large group if well led.
Anyway, the song is certainly speaking to me, and for me just at the moment.

This video is a solo rendition.

The lyrics:
1.
We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things
Refrain.
‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
2.
We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe
Chorus.
Bridge
When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not our home
Second Refrain.
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise
