Through the Night

I was thinking back to last year when I went to the National Quartet Convention. I went with my mom and my friend Maritza and her mom. It was an experience I’ll never forget. I heard many of my favorite groups and met some of the singers. I met Rodney Griffin from the group Greater Vision and have written about some of his songs on my blog before.

I also got a chance to meet Libby Perry which sings with the group the Perry’s. She was very nice!! Libby’s husband Tracy, who use to sing bass on the group, had a stroke last July. Tracy has improved with the Lord’s help.

I met Libby in September, two months after Tracy’s stroke and he was still in the hospital. The Perry’s recorded their new album, “Through the Night” before Tracy’s stroke. So, when Libby sang the song, “Through the Night” at the convention, it was moving! There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. It was one of the many highlights of the trip.

“Through the Night” won the Song of the Year award.

This song has brought me to tears at night when I thought all hope was lost. I can’t imagine what you may be going through right now, but I do know that the Bible says in Psalm 30:5b “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” What an encouraging verse. I hope this song is a blessing to you

Through the Night

Verse 1
I don’t understand this burden Lord, how long must it last? I have prayed and thought surely by now it would have past. Oh I know your joy will come in morning time.

Chorus
Still I will praise You through the night while this trial perseveres,
I will raise my hands to Heaven and praise You through my tears,
Cause You are never less than faithful though Your hand is not in sight,
So my broken heart will left its voice and praise You through the night!

Verse 2
Though the darkness feels like fire and this trial burns like flames,
Though the wind may rage against me as the enemy takes aim,
Still I know You’re always with me in the fight.

Chorus
So I will praise You through the night while this trial perseveres,
I will raise my hands to Heaven and praise You through my tears,
cause You are never less than faithful though Your hand is not in sight, So my broken heart will left its voice and praise You through the night!
( I have seen your hands of mercy move a thousand times before, so I can trust that you are working in this trial Lord I will praise You through the night while this trial perseveres,
I will raise my hands to Heaven and praise You through my tears,
Because You are never less than faithful though Your hand is not in sight, So my broken heart will left its voice and praise You through the night!
