I Will Call On You


(stop at end of song)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In joy I will praise you; in peace I will worship you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.
In sadness I will cling to you; in turmoil I will rest in you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.

When things go awry in this world of sin,
I’ll look to you for your wisdom and strength.
When all is well, and I have peace within,
I’ll look to you with love and devotion.

In truth I will seek you; in faith I will follow you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.
In doubting I will turn to you; distressed I will trust in you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.

When lives all around are filled with such pain,
I’ll look to you for compassion and grace.
When prayers are answered; loved ones born again,
I’ll look to you with thanks and with praise.

In love I will serve you; in hope I will wait for you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.
In gladness I will give to you; obeying I will live in you.
In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.

I'll call on you.

 Shortly after I was saved, I read the account of Joseph in the Book of Genesis. As a new Christian, it made quite an impression on me, and it has always been one of my favorite stories from the old testament. Who would have thought that God had a part in Joseph’s brothers selling him into slavery? I’m sure when he was going through it all, even Joseph didn’t understand why all these things were happening to him, but he remained faithful to God none the less. It took many years before God’s plan became evident, but in Genesis 45:8a Joseph tells his brothers, “So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God:” God had a plan for Joseph’s life, even though it meant that he would have to endure pain and suffering.
 I’m so thankful that I learned this early on in my Christian life! It’s so comforting to know that no matter how confusing, or how difficult the circumstances of my life may be, God is in control. He has a plan for my life, and as long as I stick close, nothing can get to me unless God allows it past him. Knowing that makes everything that comes my way easier to handle….and it also makes me want to stay as close to my Lord as I can possibly get!

Philippians 4:11,13 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am , therewith to be content.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.


*Story behind the song

I wrote the beginnings of this song when I had been saved about a year. It was the end of a bad day, and I had poured my heart out to the Lord, in the form of poetry; something I had never done before. I tucked that poem away, and forgot about it, until ten years later when I came across it. I added to the initial lyrics, but the theme remains the same. It’s the answer I found as a baby Christian when I was overwhelmed by the frustrations of this life: In all I will call on you, my Saviour, my Lord.
