trading my sorrow

“As people of the Lord, we must let go of unforgiveness and bitterness and lay them down. It is a great trade, and we get the better end of the deal.” 

words and music by darrel evans

I’m trading my sorrows
I’m trading my shame
I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness
I’m trading my pain
I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes Yes Lord
Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes Yes Lord
Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes Yes Lord
Amen

I am pressed but not crushed
Persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed

I am blessed beyond the curse
For his promise will endure
And His joy is gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning

For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. 

(Psalms 30:5, English Standard Version)
