We Cried Out to You (Psalm 107)

A few years ago, Chad Davis preached on Psalm 107 on Thanksgiving Sunday. He noted that the Psalm had a verse-chorus structure to it, which inspired (little-i, not the authoritative brand) me to try to convey the Psalm into music.

We Cried Out to You (Psalm 107)

We were wandering in the desert
We were starving, we were poor
Our hearts were longing; they were empty
We tried everything but only wanted more

Then we cried out to You in our trouble
We called out to You in our distress
You satisfied us with good things
You led us home and gave us rest

Facing judgment as wicked rebels
We were locked away in irons and chains
Paid the wages of our foolishness
Our broken spirits were fading away

Then we cried out to You in our trouble
We called out to You in our distress
You broke our chains, You set us free
You now call us “Beloved” and “Blessed”

On the seas we sailed and traded
At Your command You created a storm
Our courage melted at the winds and waves
We reeled and staggered like all hope was gone

Then we cried out to You in our trouble
We called out to You in our distress
You calmed the sea, You hushed the waves
You led us to a harbor of rest

Whether sunshine or storm and rain
Lifted up or crushed at His word
Let the wise man pay attention
To the faithful love of the LORD

We give thanks to You, You are worthy
We redeemed of the LORD say so
Your love endures forever
Safe in Your hands, You’ll never let us go
