08. Run In The Night

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay


I know who I am
Once I was nameless, alone and you found me
You formed my knees to bend
You call me Beloved, I am perfection

All my failures wonít condemn me
Or leave me paralyzed and bound
When Iím at my worst
Your Love, it finds me first

By you, I can run in the night
For by you, I can run in the night

For I am such a man
Seized by the power of a great affection
No matter where I am
Peace spreads below me in every direction

When evil sets the war upon me
I wonít stumble, I wonít fall
Though they do their worst
Your love has found me first

For by you, I can run in the night
For by you, I can run in the night
For by you, I can run in the night

Hide me in the shelter of
Keep me in the cover of
Lead me in the light of your love
Hide me in the light of your love

No matter where I am
Whom shall I fear
Lead me in the light

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: Spun out of Psalm 27, an anthem proclaiming that we are not defined by our failures, but that we are forever identified as perfectly loved children of the living God.

DAN HASELTINE: Believing that we are truly beloved and perfectly forgiven may be one of the most difficult things we try to do in a given day or night.

STEVE MASON: God's love for us when named this way is overwhelming to believe. But it is true. And that love brings sight.

MATT ODMARK: The Power and the Beauty of the unafraid.
