This song is by Darrell Evans and appears on the compilation WoW Worship Green (2001).

This song has been covered by…
I'm trading my sorrows I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
Yeah - spoken
I'm trading my sickness I'm trading my pain
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

We say
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Amen

I am pressed but not crushed
Persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I am blessed beyond the curse
For His promise will endure
That His joy's gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning

I'm trading my sorrows I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
Trading my sickness - spoken
I'm trading my sickness I'm trading my pain
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

Oh, we agree with You, Lord
We say
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Amen

We say
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
We say
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
We say
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Amen

I am pressed but not crushed
Persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I am blessed beyond the curse
For His promise will endure
That His joy's gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning, yeah

I'm trading my sorrows I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
Oh, la la... - spoken
I'm trading my sickness I'm trading my pain
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

Spoken:
Ha, ha ha,
Yeah
Come and set our feet a dancing
Put a new song in our heart, O God
A song of praise and hope

Oh la la la….
Come on - spoken
La la la….

Oh la la….

Well, let the children of God dance - spoken

Yeah
Yeah

I'm trading my sorrows I'm trading my shame
I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
I'm trading my sickness (yeah) I'm trading my pain
I'm laying them down for the joy (the joy) of the Lord

La la la….

Spoken:
Yeah
Yes, Lord
Yeah
Let Your joy be our strength in You, Lord
