Through all the changing scenes of life

Through all the changing scenes of life,
  In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
  My heart and tongue employ.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
  With me exalt His name;
When in distress to Him I called,
  He to my rescue came.
The hosts of God encamp around
  The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
  Who on His succor trust.
Oh, make but trial of His love,
  Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
  Who in His truth confide.
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.

This hymn is very special to me, I learnt it back in school but whenever I sing it, my spirit is lifted.

Oh yes indeed, in all ups and downs of life's journey, I will continue to let the praises of my Creator be in my heart. This hymn always gives me joy in the when I hear or sing it.

This is a priceless yesteryear hymn that still has contemporary underpinnings. It is a constant reminder to us that GOD is a GOD of comfort and a surcease in time of trials and tribulations. And boy, are we buffetted about with the vagaries of today's society and the vicissitudes of life! We are so grateful that our LORD is a "covert from storm and from rain" - ISAIAH 4:6, of these perilous times and the waning days of this earth's existence. This hymn has been a favorite of my mother (who is 21 years deceased) and now is included in my "favorites" column.

I really love this song as it reminds me of God's love to us. God is always in control and with us all of our lives no matter what we are going through. Lo I am with you always. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.

I am blessed reading these hymns daily and singing my heart out to the Lord Jesus Christ. I am blessed each day after singing one hymn.

Verse 2 of this hymn shows us how to even continue to exalt the name of my Maker in even difficult situations, because He will surely rescue me. It means He is aware of the situation. It makes me to rejoice rather than cry and worry. In fact it strengthens me.
