I rejoice when I remember your past blessings,
When I consider your mercies from the past, I am glad.
With this, I look forward to what’s to come,
Your future gifts my God, I gladly anticipate.
For future blessings outshine the past,
The old mercies are overshadowed by the new.
So I will cast my cares before the Lord,
At the Almighty’s feet, I lay down my fears.
The sadness in my heart, I give to my King,
Upon my Prince, I cast all my sorrow.
For He alone can turn worry into hope,
My sorrow, He only can turn into joy.
So I will seek and love my Lord with all that I am,
With all my soul, I will pursue and adore my God.
For even the hard times He turns to blessings,
New mercies He creates out of times of pain.
You have done this before and I will praise my God,
My Savior will do it again and I will give thanks.
