SONG OF THE WEEK: Sometimes I Cry by Jason Crabb

I’m so glad I found this song.  I apparently am not the only one because it won Song of the Year at the 2011 Dove Awards.   Jason’s rich voice and simple clarity makes Sometimes I Cry a true expression of a simple truth:  No matter how strong your faith, sometimes the walk can be hard.

I try to speak faith
never give the devil one inch to get in
I do worship and praise
let everybody know just where that I stand
on the back of my ride is a fish and a cross
for the world to see
I know God is good, all of the time
yes there’s no doubt for me

Chorus
But sometimes I hurt and sometimes I cry
sometimes I can’t get it right
no matter how hard I seem to try
sometimes I fall down
stumble over my own disguise
I try to look strong
as the whole world looks on
but sometimes alone I cry

My favorite line is when the chorus says “Sometimes I can’t get it right no matter how hard I try.”  It’s time like those we fall back on Jesus’ ability to use our mistakes.  Sit back and let the truth of this lovely song melt through you.
