trading my sorrows lyrics – darrell evans

[1] i’m trading my sorrow
i’m trading my shame
i’m laying it down for the joy of the lord

i’m trading my sickness
i’m trading my pain
i’m laying it down for the joy of the lord

[chorus]
and 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’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 sorrow may last for the night
his joy comes in the morning.
