Though the tears may fall my song will rise, my song will rise to You.
Though my heart may fail my song will rise, my song will rise to You.

While there's breath in my lungs, I will praise You, Lord.

In the dead of night, I'll lift my eyes, I'll lift my eyes to You.
When the waters rise I'll lift my eyes, I'll lift my eyes to You.

When I cannot feel Your hand in mine, let faith arise to You.

God of mercy and love, I will praise You,  Lord.

Oh, You shine with glory, Lord of light, I feel alive with You.
In Your presence now, I come alive I am alive with You.

There is strength when I say "I will praise You, Lord!"

      G              A        Bm7             A/C♯   D
When sorrow comes my way, You are the shield around me;
G            A          Bm7            A
Always You remain like courage in the fight.
  G                 A    Bm7        A/C♯   D
I hear you call my name, Jesus I am coming;
G               A      D                A
Walking on the waves, reaching for Your light.

Though the tears may fall my song will rise
My song will rise to You
Though my heart may fail my song will rise
My song will rise to You
While there’s breath in my lungs
I will praise You Lord

In the dead of night I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
When the waters rise I’ll lift my eyes
I’ll lift my eyes to You
While there’s hope in this heart
I will praise You Lord

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
in the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
the joy of the Lord is my strength

When I cannot see you with my eyes, let faith arise to You
When I cannot feel Your hand in mine, let faith arise to You
God of mercy and love I will praise You Lord

Oh You shine with glory Lord of light, I feel alive with You
In your presence now I come alive I am alive with You
There is strength when I say
“I will praise You Lord!”

When sorrow comes my way
You are the shield around me
Always You remain
Like courage in the fight
I hear you call my name, Jesus I am coming
Walking on the waves, reaching for Your light
