Through all the changing scenes of life

1
Through all the changing scenes of life,
  In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
  My heart and tongue employ.
2
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
  With me exalt His name;
When in distress to Him I called,
  He to my rescue came.
3
The hosts of God encamp around
  The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
  Who on His succor trust.
4
Oh, make but trial of His love,
  Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
  Who in His truth confide.
5
Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
  Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight,
  Your wants shall be His care.

We must keep on remembering God in Praise even when we are sad, and not only when we are happy (vs 1)

In distress, we must magnify Him (vs 2)

We must be conscious that God is always there to deliver us (vs 3)

Testing from His love is germane. Experience will tell how blest one is. (vs 4)

All he wants is for us to FEAR HIM and there is NO SHAKING (vs 5)

This hymn is one of my favourites.

This truly brings comfort and assurance that regardless of what I go through in life, God is with me. The seasons of life varies but God never changes. He takes care of His own. You don't know the awesomeness of God until you trust in Him and experience Him.

Mary O Sodipo

Sagamu, Ogun, Nigeria

I sang out the 2nd stanza of this hymn from my sleep this morning. I've always loved this hymn. The 5th stanza has always been a reassurance and God's unconditional promise for me.

God is closer to us than we can ever imagine if ONLY we are quiet and wait enough we WILL hear His voice.


Ressa Beatrice Mwangale

Oh magnify the Lord with me. Exalt his name. He will rescue us when we are in distress. I love this song. It uplifts when am down. From the start of the corona19 virus, life changed for most of us. I have relied on God for the strength, and protection of family and all at large

This morning I wanted to pray for a family member in distress and it came to mind. Be blessed you all. Amen
