If It Wasn’t For The Lord

I’ve mentioned my new CD, Worth It All, that will be releasing this year. I know you are anxious to hear it so I wanted to give you a sneak peak. While I don’t have audio for you to hear, I do want to share with you the lyrics to one of the songs. This is more than just another song for me. This song has been a source of strength and comfort for me so many times. I trust it blesses you as it has me. I cannot wait for you to turn up the volume and sing along with me real soon.

If It Wasn’t For The Lord
Copyright James Short 2011

Verse 1
He said He’d never leave me – Not even one time
When I’m going through a trial – He would walk right by my side
That’s a promise I hang on to – For it’s a promise He’s gonna keep
If it wasn’t for the Lord – I don’t know where I would be

If it wasn’t for the Lord – I don’t know where I would be
That’s more than just a phrase I say – It’s the way my heart beats
I cast my every care – On the one who cares for me
If it wasn’t for the Lord – I don’t know where I would be

Verse 2
When your way seems uncertain – You’re unsure which steps to take
Just put your trust in Jesus – For He alone knows the way
Let him lead and guide you – You don’t have to be afraid
Just say if it wasn’t for the Lord – I don’t know where I’d be today

  1. Yay! Cant wait till it comes out! Thanks for great music!

  2. Looking forward to your new CD.

  3. Bro Short, as a huge fan of your first album, I am highly anticipating this new release. Just curious, will this also be an iTunes release or would that come later?? I will buy one either way lol

    I love you and your family and I am always excited to hear the good reports of Gods Spirit working in the Philipines… God Bless.

    • Hello Travis! Yes, it will be an iTunes release as well but it will take several weeks for them to show up on iTunes. However, I’ll have digital copies available on my website on the release date. Thanks for asking!
