Sometimes Sunday Songs is Monday Songs. That’s just the way things are presently.
I Long For You from the EMU MusicJoy In Sorrow.
This album seems to have a fine balance of well expressed lyrics and engaging melodies.
It feels more poetic and more singable than other recent past releases. I appreciate that.

The lyrics
When my confidence deserts me
And my perseverance fades
When the darkness overwhelms me, Lord, I look to you
Through the weight of sin and sorrow
You will teach me to rejoice
Through the fiery trials and darkest vale, I long for you
When your goodness is my portion
And your blessings overflow
When your loving arms protect me, Lord, I rest in you
You refresh my soul with wisdom
There is nothing that I lack
Through the pastures green and waters still, I long for you
When my strength begins to falter
And my body waste away
When my earthly treasures fail me, Lord, I cling to you
I will look to Christ my saviour
Where my soul is satisfied
And forever I am known and loved, within your arms
