Day 55: You Were There

This would be the last song I would post for this week.  Why?  Because I am going to take a break from posting songs this coming week (which is the Holy Week) as I don’t want to go riffling through my playlist for songs during this time.   I will, however, be posting an article or two that would go well with the spirit of Holy Week.

Anyways, to open up the Holy Week, I decided to go with a gospel song.  It’s from Avalon and the song is entitled: You Were There.  I love Avalon.  I love their songs and the message that their songs bring.  If I would have to choose a single gospel group I would choose Avalon (Hillsongs come close to second).  This song is one of my favorite from their album “The Creed”.

You know, it’s pretty easy to forget that God is always with us what with all the stuff that goes on with our lives and with the world.  Is so easy to think that there’s nothing good in this world and that there isn’t anything worth living for.  It’s so easy to believe that–since life is a gift that God has given us–that we have all the right in the world to do what we please with our life, to commit suicide whenever we just feel all hopeless in believing that there’s nothing in this life worth living for.

But, you know, you should feel ashamed of thinking that.  We should all feel ashamed in thinking that are lives (and those of others whether they be religious or sinners) aren’t worth squat.  God gave his only son for us.  To save us.  He gave his life so we may live.  I think it is only right that we do just that–live–and not just go through the motions of every day life as if its just something we have to get over with.

Our lives–and the lives of others–mean something and it even means more since Jesus gave his life for us, to save us from sin at the cost of his own life…who are we to take our lives and the lives of others?

It’s something to think about, you know.

Anyways, below are the lyrics to this song.  I hope you guys take a moment to listen to this song and hear the lyrics.  Contemplate on it.  I know it isn’t a Rhianna or a J-Lo, or an Usher, or Kanye.  It isn’t even a B.E.P or any other song sung by a popular artist but, this is the most beautiful and heartfelt songs that I have ever heard.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

I wonder how it must have felt
When David stood to face Goliath on a hill
I imagine that he shook with all his might
Until You took his hand, and held on tight

‘Cause You were there, You were there
In the midst of danger’s snare
You were there, You were there always
You were there when the hardest fight
Seemed so out of reach
Oh, You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So there he stood upon that hill
Abraham with knife in hand was poised to kill
But God in all his sovereignty had bigger plans
And just in time, You brought a lamb

‘Cause You were there,
You were there
In the midst of the unclear
You were there, you were there always
You were there when obedience
Seemed to not make sense
You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So haven’t I learned that my ways
Aren’t as high as Yours are
And You alone keep the universe
From crumbling into dust
You are God and though we would
Not have understood You
There You were

Hanging blameless on a cross
You would rather die than leave us in the dark
Every moment, every planned coincidence
Just all makes sense
With Your last breath

You were there, You were there
During history’s darkest hour
You were there, You were there always
You were the Victor and the King
You were the power in David’s swing
You were the calm in Abraham
You are the God who understands
You are the strength when we have none
You are the living, Holy one
You were, You are and You will always be
the Risen Lamb of God

You were, You are and You will always be
The Risen Lamb of God
