09. Scared

Above The Golden State
by Above The Golden State



 

I am scared
I'm afraid
Mercy me
With Your grace
My heart said in brokenness
I want to see Your face
Don't You hide
Don't You leave
Don't You turn
Away from me

‘Cause if You go I'll be forsaken
Who will be my souls salvation

Lord, hear my cry, hear my heart
Here I come to where You are
I'll be there for You
You'll be there for me
Lord, though I'm weak, You are strong
So I'll go back where I belong
And You'll be there for me
I'll be there for You
You'll be there for me

Answer me
In my place
You told me
To seek Your face
My heart spoke with heaviness
Your face I will seek
Don't give up
Don't forget
Remember me
I won't quit
What good am I if I'm not taken
And who am I without salvation

Behind the Song:
“Scared” is inspired lyrically by Psalm 27. There are many songs that quote sections of Psalm 27, but I really wanted to capture the chapter in its entirety, as well as the heart of David who wrote it. I’m challenged by David’s earnest prayer in Psalm 27, which is real and intense. He’s extremely bold in His request to the Lord, and I hope to pray that same way. Too often I talk to God out of routine, and rarely do I pray with this kind of expectation and faith. Ultimately, it reminds me that to the degree I seek out God, He will always meet me with equal or greater passion." - Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
