Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me

Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me;
  Thou hast put off my sackcloth;
Thou hast turned my mourning into dancing for me,
  And girded me with gladness;
To the end my glory may sing praise unto Thee,
  And not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee forever.

A very famous child actor in Taiwan, after many sufferings in her life, became a very joyful Christian and liked this song very much.

I woke up singing this song, but could not remember all the words, after crying for the last few weeks about my children, and finally having prayer for this. I woke up with this song. And you made me even happier, by playing it on the piano, I love the piano.



After reading your comments, I was convicted in my spirit. I lost a beloved bird a week ago and I looked for her and cried all the nights and days and I was unable to accept any comfort. Even now it is still the case. However, you Yichien lost a BABY! I am so sorry. I am so sorry. I did not know the hymn, but picked it wishing it was true in my case. I pray it will be soon.

After losing our baby at 16 months, I was in mouring for longer than I care to remember until one day, I lifted up my eyes and looked onto the heavens to seek my God. He strengthened me and beared my grief. Praise You, Lord! You have turned my mourning into dancing by giving me Your very self. Praise You that I have a spirit not confined to my human circumstances!

Truly God has turned my mourning into joy, after 21 years of drug addiction, my husband is clean. God is good. Ever faithful. He delivered me from the bondage of living with an addict and now I am at peace and content with my husband of 24 years. Praise be to God!

When I've heard again this song, I cried because of joy. I love You Lord.
