You never let go

I've noticed lately that there are so many songs that I just sing without actually listening to the words. Since I've heard the songs for so long, I just "go through the motions" when I hear them. This is one of those songs. It's been on Klove (Christian radio station) as long as I can remember, but up until a few days ago, it didn't really mean much to me. I actually listened to the words of it.


"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I'm caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won't turn back
I know you are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?

Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm

Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We'll live to know You here on the earth

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You"

  1. I adore this song. I was actually thinking the same thing just this morning though about listening to words rather than just singing them - I woke up with "The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning, it's time to sing your song again, Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
    Let me be singing when the evening comes" in my head and it felt so familiar and yet I realised I don't have any real memory of ever singing those words before.. because I've never thought about them while singing them.

  2. I also love this song. I have it on my iTunes library, by Hallal Music, and think often of you and Rebecca when I hear it. I also like their "Blue Skies" and "Enter In." I often think of you and Rebecca when hearing the first, and esp. Rebecca, as well as others who are gone, when I hear the last. I frequently put these on when I am feeling especially low and having a rough time. But I still end up often thinking of you, as well as others who have a fight ahead of them. Then I get kind of a "bonus" out of listening. I'm encouraged, and I am reminded to pray for you and others once again. But yes, it really IS so easy to listen and not "hear."
