Casey Darnell’s new album came out today and I have been listen to the song on repeat and playing the guitar and singing it out as a prayer. Particularly, the bridge speaks to me in the season of my life right now … trusting in God’s perfect timing and knowing that God is with me.

WHEN THE WATERS RISE
Casey Darnell 

VERSE 1

You are holding me together with hands that hold forever;
God You are strong
And when the storm around me rages, Your love never changes;
God You are strong
You are with me Lord, always with me Lord

CHORUS

When the waters rise around me I am safe; 
In the valley Lord, You are near always
You have me surrounded by your grace; 
When my strength is gone, I won’t be afraid
You are with me always

VERSE 2

My refuge, when the walls have fallen, 
You are near the broken; God, You are strong
For You make beauty from the ashes with love that never ceases;
You are strong

BRIDGE

When there seems no way, when this life brings pain
I won’t be afraid, You are with me Lord
When there seems no way, when this life brings pain
I won’t be afraid, You are with me Lord
