NEW VIDEO, NEW SONG. "I'll Give Thanks"
This song was written back in 2007 but underwent several changes over the years. A week or so ago I rewrote a whole new melody and those around me decided that we should finally record it. The song is called "I'll give thanks." I'm often prone to question God's holy Sovereignty when trouble comes my way. We know he's always working everything for our good and yet still we struggle to respond appropriately to trials. This is a song that declares I'll choose to give thanks in everything, I'll give thanks to my King, I'll give thanks for all the ways, he's working everything for my good. The bridge is a simple reminder to bless the name of the Lord whether the Lord gives or takes away. Ps.42:5 says, "Why are you downcast, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, my salvation." He is our salvation, he holds our lives in his hand, he has saved us, he will guide us and sustain us until the end so we want to say, "I'll give thanks in everything."
My sons Josh and Joel are playing on this song. They came up with the arrangement and Josh sings the song. Enjoy! Please share it if you like it. The chord chart is available here.
