Trading My Sorrows

This song is by Jeremy Riddle.

I'm trading my sorrows
I'm trading my shame
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

And I'm trading my sickness
And I'm trading my pain
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord

Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen

Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen

I'm pressed but not crushed, persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I'm blessed beyond the curse for His promise will endure
And His joy's gonna be my strength

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

And I'm trading my sorrows
I'm trading my shame
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord, yeah Lord

And I'm trading my sickness
And I'm trading my pain
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
For the joy of the Lord

I say, yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen
I say now

I say yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord
Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen
Amen, Amen

And I'm trading my sorrows
And I'm trading my shame
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
For the joy of the Lord, yes

And I'm trading my sickness
And I'm trading my pain
And I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord
Your joy, Your, Your joy, Your joy

And I'm trading my sorrows
And I'm trading my shame
And I'm laying it down for the joy of the Lord
Your joy
