Praise Him Anyway

On the way to work today I heard Katie Giguere's version of country singer Martina McBride's song "Anyway" and boy did it make me cry! I could use the excuse that I am overly-emotional because I'm pregnant, but I won't because I really am just a big cry-baby :-) Songs - mainly Christian songs - make me cry all the time... as you can see from previous posts! I think this version, found on Katie's album "I Lift My Eyes Up", is more moving than Martina's version. It's so soft and humble sounding, yet so strong when she sings the "anyway" parts. She also slightly changed the lyrics and I like them better as well. Below the lyrics is a video of Katie singing this song. (Not the official music video, but it was the only one I could find.) I hope God blesses you in listening to it!

 
ANYWAY
(Katie Giguere's version)

You can spend your whole life building
Something from nothin’
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not never come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This world’s gone crazy
It’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
In a moment they can choose to walk away
Love ‘em anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yea – I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yea – praise Him anyway

I sing
I dream
I love
Oh, anyway
Anyway
