My Song For Terri

This song is my daily devotional. I think it is very appropriate today.


Trading My Sorrows

by Darryl 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
And we're singing

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

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
And we're singing

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
That His joy is gonna be my strength
Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes in the morning


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
And we're singing

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

And we're singing
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen

Yes Lord, Amen
Yes Lord, Amen!

    It is hard to keep up with your "range of moods," but I like that. You walk me through each and every step of the emotions I feel, and land me on my feet, looking up. Thank you.

    A loved one....

  • Now, if only all those people and news vans and helicopters would leave the hospice and finally let the 67 dying people and their families have some peace. It's disgraceful that the protesters didn't do it at the court building or somewhere else. No respect for anything but there own opinions and loud mouths.

  • Hey, anonymous

    YOU don't get it! There is nothing anyone can do about the terminally ill. There IS somehting we can do about those that are NOT terminally ill.

    Talk about disrespect! YOU are the one showing disrespect!

    Thank GOD people were willing to stand for people like Terri. These people showed RESPECT OF LIFE. Far more important than YOUR show of disrespect for life. DON'T YOU preach about respect FOR OTHERS! YOU HAVE SHOWN DISRESPECT FOR A LIVING WOMAN- NOT TERMINAL- BUT OBLIVIOUS TO HER STATE ORdERED MURDER! BE GONE YOU WITCH!

  • Anonymous,
    Should Martin Luther King have staged a sit-down in front of the Courthouse in Montgomery, AL or somewhere more "acceptable" instead of marching from Selma? This is about civil rights, the right to live. Nowhere does the Constitution recognize the right to die or kill for convenience.
    Maybe Dr. King should not have marched on Washington to protest for jobs and freedom. Maybe Dr. King and his followers should have just stayed in Atlanta, where he was born and not spoken out for what he perceived to be dserious injustice. Is this what you believe?

  • I'll tell you anon#3, if I had a loved one in that particular hospice where Terri was I'd get them out like yesterday. I really doubt their respect to life.

  • Have I mentioned how much I hate Blogger? I doubt this will go through....

    If it does: Rest In Peace Terri. I don't have the words.
