Hillsong – The Desert Song lyrics
Verse 1:
This is my prayer in the desert
When all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides

Verse 2:
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

Chorus:
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 3:
And this is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on it's way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

Chorus:
I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Bridge:
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

Chorus:
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 4:
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've recieved I will sow

    God always remains with me and with everyone who believes in him. Even in the desert when we do not feel he is there, he is! Like when you are taking a test at school, does the teacher speak to you? No. In the same way god may be silent when you are being tested in the desert or your faith is being refined by the flames. But he is still there. Whatever is happening it is the best for you.

    The song tells or reliance in faith and the lord. It tells of safety and the writers return to the lord. It tells of god bettering the writer as well as showing him/her the way with christian belief. It tells of god undeniable love for us and his allowance. It is a song of hope in faith. It refers to the battles a christian goes through and how god will empower is through them.

    When I feel in the desert, I pray to God and ask for a red bird cardinal to come my way as a sign He is with me. Each and every time this has happened, a red bird showing up suddenly sitting on my fence or flying in my path. He hears me and lets me know he is there. It is then I can get back up and be encouraged again. Praise God!

    This is a prayer of my life, and since god is with me I will not fear and sing praise just like job did in his hard times although he went through a lot of trouble he still sang praises for god, although his wife said why he is still praising god if he gave him such trouble, she said, "you might as well curse god and die. " but job loved god and stayed faithful to him.

    Everything has it's time and place. During the difficult times we must remember that everything goes in cycles and it always ends well for those who believe in jesus christ. This is what paul meant when he said he has "learned to be abased and abound". Paul went through those cycles in life. As he said "rejoice in the lord always and again i say rejoice". Paul speaks of this because god is our victory because of his finished work on the cross. This world can bring disappointment but it can not steal our joy (unless we let it) because the big picture (salvation of our souls) had been taken care of. A pastor once put it this way. Scripture says the joy of the lord is our strength. If the enemy wants us to weaken us he goes for our joy so like paul told us, "rejoice... " the story does not end here and neither does yours. Your story will inspire someone else to use god's mercy promised through every sunrise to try again. So get, pray, sing to our faithful father and get with your brothers and sisters to walk with you through this storm. Soon you find yourself learning to dance rain pour and all. And that's when the sun (son) shine again.

    My family has been going through a lot and no matter what trouble we are going through, god is constant. We may be struggling to stay together, but triumph is still on its way. I don't know what is going to happen, but I know that god will provide and through the flames of hard times, we will be refined. God will be my victory throughout these trials and times of pain. I'm relying on him that he will pull us through this difficult season and his promises will remain true. He has a purpose for this pain. I will bring praise despite the chaos that surrounds me. To me, this is a song of hope and praise to my ever-faithful father. To him be the glory.

    Today I woke up feeling really down about some
    situations in my life. I felt so overwhelmed, and I wasn't even really sure how to pray. Then, the words of this song came to mind, like they were sent from god to encourage me. So, I started to write down what I remembered of the song. Then,
    I googled the lyrics and printed them out. I am sending a copy to others who may be discouraged and taking a copy to work with me. Feel better already. God is great!

    ,:-/ . Hurt and pain, waiting to be released, lightened or healed.
    It hurts, it feels bad. It does hurt. It is hard very hard to keep waiting to be delievered. It just hurts. Some times just get distracted for a while trying to make time go fast but pain and hurt is felt again so not much chance to run away. Then just wait and hope. Hold to beleive all thhis has a purpose and goes beyond I could ever imagine. Hold on to believe on his promises, charcater and love. Hold on it will pass, it will pass. Victory, conquerors, . It may just mean be fully transformed and new creature become as eagles undressing the old. T are you s t! He is beyond faithfullness! T are you s t! ! Bc there is no where else to go. Trust! And wait for the lord almighty, even there is unbearable pain and hurt. Trust!

    In all of our lifes desert, fire, battle, storms and all forms like it may we all be able to pray and stay joy-fully with it! (even not liking it perhaps) its god's way of refining us! And if he does. Just always remember (from st. Teresa of avila accepting the cross jesus offers to her) and I quote: now I know why do you call me a friend!

    It's great song and I really liked to read the comments that has been made by precious sisters and brothers.
    Catherineteo I don't know you and I'm going to pray for you. My marriage also had problem and I was wrong and faithfulness of my wife to God and to me and her unconditional love not only saved our marriage but stopped me being backslider. Don't give up your reward is great dear sister.

    This song is reminding each and everyone of us that there is still god who never stops loving us! So, whatever situation we are facing at this point, never quit. Hold on to God's promises. He is bigger than our problems. Keep in mind that everything has a purpose subject to God's will and nothing is beyond God's control! Trust God all the time. He loves us! God bless everyone.

    The Bridge to the song is my inspiration. He is still God, I have a reason to worship. Not to long ago, I was dismissed from my school for falling 0. 023 of a point away from the standard. It broke my heart. It's all I've wanted to ever to do or be in life. And just a few days ago, I broke up with someone I loved. Today, as I worshipped, I have faith that God will save me, and I still have a reason to worship. Amen.

    Jill Mccloghry wrote this song and about a week and a half before recording the song she went into premature labor with her first son Max. He was only 23 weeks and 5 days old. He died after one day. She went to the recording but didn't feel God's presence because she was so numb from the loss. She said about a month after the recording she realized that the song was perfect for her and that God was speaking to her the entire time through this song.

    My husband, 46, is fighting for his life in a hospital an hour away from our home. This song gives me the assurance that Gos is by my side, fighting this battle with me. He is my strength and my comfort and He is my husband's victory and He is with him in that hospital. We are in the battle and triumph is on it's way. We stand firm on His promises and we know there will be a harvest! Praise God.
