My New Song

You know the words, "He hath put a new song in my heart, even praise unto our God"? I do. A while ago, I was getting discouraged and down. Finally, I prayed and asked the Lord to give me a new song to write that would lift my spirits, as well as others. On the 9th, this is the song He gave me, called, He's Never Given Up

He's Never Given Up
(Jan. 9, 2009)

Why do we give up on God so fast?
Even though we know these trials won't last,
Though friends may prove untrue, in God I will trust,
Why do we give up on God, He's never given up on us.

Verse 1
Mary and Martha, they were standing by their dear brother's grave,
Lazarus had been sick, but now it was too late,
The crowd cried, "He's coming!" Martha ran to him and cried,
"Lord, if you would have been here, Lazarus would not have died."


Verse 2
Sometimes in this life, we have a burden that we all must bear,
We look around and wonder, "Does anybody care?"
We lift our hands up to God and question, "Why?"
But you don't have to give up, why don't you give faith a try?


Repeat: Why do we give up on God, He's never given up on us,
He'll never give up on us.
