‘These Things Shall Pass’ Bill Gaither Worship Performance

In life, everyone will endure hardships and trials, which at the time, seem like they will never end, but one song reminds us that those difficult periods are only temporary.

Bill Gaither, a massive figure in Christian music for decades, sang recently about these times. In a video posted to YouTube, Bill is joined by friends as he sings “These Things Shall Pass.”

The video shows Bill sitting at a piano as he sings the beautiful lyrics to the uplifting and encouraging song. The song reminds us that despite our current troubling circumstances, “The Lord our God is still the King upon his throne.”

The song also mentions that these trials, while only temporary, will help to make us stronger in the long run. The lyrics state that “steel is strong because it knew the hammer and white heat.” 

Also, the song adds that if we hold onto our faith and love and they remain strong, these troubling situations “cannot long endure.”

Praise God!

Unfortunately, no one will escape this life unscathed. Heartache and trouble will visit us on occasion. But instead of giving up and throwing in the towel, there is hope just beyond the horizon because God is still in control. He knows what troubles us and will never leave or forsake us, as the Bible mentions. 

Others commenting on the YouTube video mentioned how they appreciated the song’s wonderful, encouraging and hopeful message.

“What a beautiful song! It touched my soul, tears came from my eyes! Thank you, Jesus! These things shall pass!” one person posted.

Thank you for this song guys. My life hasn’t turned out the way I expected but Good is good. He brought me through it all and He still is,” another person added.

2 Corinthians 1:3 “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.”
