Blessings

Released 2011

"Blessings" is a powerful, contemplative ballad that reminds us that life's troubles just might be the benevolent hand of God growing us, in a sense His "mercies in disguise."

    Blessings

    We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
    Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
    We pray for healing, for prosperity
    We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
    And all the while, You hear each spoken need
    Yet Love is way too much to give us lesser things

    'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
    What if Your healing comes through tears
    And what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
    And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

    We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
    We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
    We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
    As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
    And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
    And long that we'd have faith to believe

    When friends betray us
    When darkness seems to win, we know
    That pain reminds this heart
    That this is not, this is not our home

    What if my greatest disappointments
    Or the aching of this life
    Is a revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
    And what if trials of this life
    The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
    Are your mercies in disguise

    We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
    Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
    We pray for healing, for prosperity
    We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
    And all the while, You hear each spoken need
    Yet Love is way too much to give us lesser things

    'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
    What if Your healing comes through tears
    And what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
    And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

    We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
    We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
    We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
    As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
    And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
    And long that we'd have faith to believe

    When friends betray us
    When darkness seems to win, we know
    That pain reminds this heart
    That this is not, this is not our home

    What if my greatest disappointments
    Or the aching of this life
