We'll Soon Be Done With Troubles and Trials Lyrics


Some of these days I'm going home
Where no sorrows ever come,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
Safe from Heartaches, pain and care,
We shall all that glory share,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.

Chorus:
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials,
(Troubles and trials. In that home)
Yes, in that home on the other side,
(On the other side, and I'm gonna)
Shake glad hands with the elders,
(Lord, and)
Tell my kindred good morning,
(Then I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm)
Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while.

2. Kindred and friends now wait for me,
Soon their faces I shall see,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
'Tis a home of Life so fair
And we'll all be gathered there,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.
Chorus:

3. I shall behold his blessed face,
I shall feel his matchless grace,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
O what peace and joy sublime
In that home of love divine,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.
Chorus:


End:
Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while,
(Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while.)

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.' 
The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord.
The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus.
This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song.

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens. She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children. 
Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth.
"Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds."
The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Below are the lyrics of this Christian hymn classic:-

Master The Tempest Is Raging Hymn Story and Lyrics

Master The Tempest Is Raging History The words of this hymn, Master The Tempest Is Raging, were written by Mary Ann Baker and they were set to music by Dr. H R Palmer in 1874. The song was published in Dr. Palmer's Songs of Love For The Bible School.
The inspiration for this song is the story of Jesus and the disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee when they encountered a big storm and their boat was at risk of capsizing. 
As the Bible reports Jesus was fast asleep while his disciples were fighting the storm and fearing for their lives. They soon realized that the savior was with them in the boat and woke him up. They complained to him saying, "Master, carest thou not that we perish."
Christ stood in the midst of the storm and rebuked the wind saying, "Peace, be still" and the storm stopped.
