"Through It All" by Andraé Crouch

It is always strange that I’ve found the most spiritual comfort through the worship of the African-American church. It is hard for me to pick my favorite Andraé Crouch song, but at this moment, I have found the most profound comfort in the song “Through It All.” Perhaps, I find that songs like this seem much more like a testimony rather than a simple worship and praise song; it almost seems that Crouch is witnessing to me a faithful God. Lyrics below:


I've had many tears and sorrows, I've had questions for tomorrow, there's been times I didn't know right from wrong. But in every situation, God gave me blessed consolation, that my trials come to only make me strong.


Through it all, through it all, I've learned to trust in Jesus, I've learned to trust in God.


Through it all, through it all, I've learned to depend upon His Word.


I've been to lots of places, I've seen a lot of faces, there's been times I felt so all alone. But in my lonely hours, yes, those precious lonely hours, Jesus lets me know that I was His own


I thank God for the mountains, and I thank Him for the valleys, I thank Him for the storms He brought me through. For if I'd never had a problem, I wouldn't know God could solve them, I'd never know what faith in God could do.
