"Praise You In This Storm" as written by Bernie Herms and Mark Hall....
I was sure by now, God you would have reached down
And wiped our tears away,
Stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
That it's still raining
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear your whisper through the rain
I'm with you
And as your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives and takes away

And I'll praise you in this storm
And I will lift my hands
That you are who you are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone how can I carry on
If I can't find you
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear you whisper through the rain
I'm with you
And as your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives and takes away

And I'll praise you in this storm
And I will lift my hands
That you are who you are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth

And I'll praise you in this storm
And I will lift my hands
That you are who you are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm

    General CommentI love this song... "But once again, I say amen
    and it's still raining" I relate to a lot... You can pray and pray and sometimes it just doesn't happen. But
    you just don't give up, and if anything it should bring you closer to Him, not farther away. "and though my heart is torn
    I will praise You in this storm" Saying, that even tho things arent going well, and I dont understand it....I'll still praise you. My life most of the time :)

    General Commentthis song.. lyric wise.. its beautiful.. listen. "I will praise you in this storm" we should consider it joy to go through trials... tribulations.. somewhere in the bible.. sorry i dont know if off the top of my head...

    Think about it. how hard is that to do "God, I'm struggling. I need You, I need help. I don't know how to deal with what I'm dealing with right now, but I know that You're there with me and I praise You for it Father God"

    its hard to say during struggle. beautiful song. ay. they rawk lol

    General CommentI love this song, it is getting me through a lot of my troubles. However, one thing I think we need to remember in the storms of life, is that with the storm comes rain, and rain is water, and water produces growth. Mountain tops are great, but nothing grows on mountain tops, everything grows in the valley

    General CommentMy aunt made me a CD and she put this song on it. I began to cry so hard as I heard the words to this song, because my brother had died in a terrible accident. The words in this song rung so true to me - and when you go through something so hard - it's hard to feel God in the midst of it, but really He's there. "I barely hear Your whisper through the rain,
    I'm with you...and as Your mercy falls-I raise my hands and praise the God who gives (a life, blessings) and takes away (the death of a loved one, the loss of one's home, job, friend, etc.)."

    The death of my brother was such a hard thing to handle. I had a strong belief in Who God was and is in my life - but I couldn't understand how God would take my brother from me. I prayed for God to heal him, make him better (he struggled with addiction, depression). Instead, he brought him home...to be with Him. I would cry out to God in pain, I would try to understand why my brother couldn't feel God & experience Who He was in his life... "I remember when I stumbled in the wind, You heard my cry -
    You raised me up again, my strength is almost gone how can I carry on - if I can't FIND You - and as the thunder rolls, I barely hear You whisper through the rain - I'M WITH YOU"... I love my Lord Jesus, and know that He IS with me. This song was beautiful and touched me in so many ways. In itself, IT was a gift to me. I truly feel that God speaks to us through His word, His voice, and in the gift He gives to many --- song. God bless you, Casting Crowns.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing.. i heard it in church just this morning and i fell in love with it. To me this song means that without the "storms" in life (pain), we would be no where... who would we have to thank for the healing? if everything was perfect and life was without trial, we would never have any reason to be thankful for the times when things are good because we wouldn't know what it was like to endure pain. Take me, for example: i have scholiosis and my back is constantly in pain. I have so many problems with it, its pathetic. But then there are times i feel like i could do back-flips... and after thanking god for relief, i thank god for the pain... because without the pain... i would have no reason to be thankful to god... this song really rings true to my heart and that is the way i feel about it

    General CommentMy favorite part of this song is...

    But once again, I say amen
    and it's still raining
    as the thunder rolls
    I barely hear Your whisper through the rain,
    "I'm with you "


    Its amazing.
    I heard it in the car with my mom and broke down.

    General Commentthis song has brought me back again and again.. Ive been in constant pain ever since january.. and i have been put through endless medical testing.. and it just seems like the pain will never end. it has seemed like every time something goes right, theres a catch. this song really woke me up and reminded me that the Lord of all creation loves me, and how ridiculous it is for me to believe that Hes not there. Even through trials, we must praise Him.
    My storm is still strong, but each pray weakens it.
    Great song, it brings me to tears
