The Balm Song

I need not fret. I need not worry.
God’s love is the balm that calms my soul.
Why be concerned about tomorrow?
My life is in God’s loving hands.
Why be concerned about tomorrow?
My life is in God’s hands.

I’ll sing of God’s love,
And I’ll sing of His compassion.
I’ll sing of His concern for me.
I’ll sing of God’s care,
And I’ll sing of His provision.
I’ll sing of all He does for me.

I need not fear. I need not be anxious.
God’s love is the balm that calms my soul.
Why be concerned about the future?
My life is in God’s loving hands.
Why be concerned about the future?
My life is in God’s hands.

I’ll sing of God’s love,
And I’ll sing of His compassion.
I’ll sing of His concern for me.
I’ll sing of God’s care,
And I’ll sing of His provision.
I’ll sing of all He does for me.

About This Song:
Watch and listen to this song here.

Because I have a limited number of songs, it’s my custom to look back three or four years or something to re-post. I always review and update the “About This Song,” and occasionally I’ll have something to update about the song itself.

But this song is a very special exception because I shared it when it was brand-new in December of 2019. Not long ago at all.

Why re-post it so soon? Two reasons.

In December we weren’t yet in the midst of the worldwide coronavirus crisis which has made numerous  people around the world fearful, worried, and desperate for hope. But we’re in the midst of that now.

I hope each of you is already a Christian and that you are relying more fully on God’s promises than ever before. I also hope you’re having opportunities to share  that hope with others.

The second reason I’m re-posting this song is it’s not exactly the same song it was in December. I’ve added a refrain.

I wanted you to have the complete song.

In the midst of chaos, I find so much hope in God’s promises that I can’t keep from singing. I sing of His love, His compassion, and His concern for me personally. And I sing of His care, His provision, and everything He does for me.

If you’re already aware of some of the various ways God has given you hope in this life-threatening season, why don’t you download this PDF of “The Balm Song” and sing it to celebrate His goodness.  Click here to open the PDF. Feel free to sing along with the video.

Look for me again next Wednesday. Better still, subscribe to receive these weekly posts by email.

Best regards,
