02. Deliverer

Saints and Sinners
by Matt Maher



 

I was a drifter, I had nowhere to go

I was hanging by threads of dust and bone

Every angel I knew was singing son come home

But the melody was hard to sing along



Oh God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

Oh God, Youíre my deliverer



I was on trial for everything I did

And thereís no way I could make a stand and win

When you realize the verdict is already in

You let go of the brokenness within

Well thereís only One who can ever stand and win



Oh God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

Oh God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

And now Iím like a child at night

Who never has to think of why

Weíre free to love and live and die

And thereís no need to justify

The sinner thatís inside of me

Has lost all his control of me

My God, from the flood and from the fire

You brought me out, I am alive

With a faith, just like a child

Iím not afraid, Iím running wild

For everything that will be done

I am yours and you are my

Deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

Oh God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

Oh God, Youíre my deliverer

The One, the One who carries us

God, Youíre my deliverer



I was hanging by threads of dust and bone

Behind the Song:
This song's a very personal song for me. I've been a huge believer in the band NEEDTOBREATHE for a long time and their ability to create music that goes beyond the fringes of the church, so I was honored they were willing to offer this haunting verse and chorus to this song that Bear [Rinehart] wrote out of his own conversation and experience. Coupled with that, the bridge was inspired by my recent experience as a dad. My son, Conor, was struggling with being afraid of the dark. So I tried writing what might be the antithesis of what he was feeling, trying to imagine what it must be like to be a kid and to have those moments where literally there's no fear-just total trust. I've never worked harder to capture that kind of moment; one of a heart cry-that sense of liberation. This bridge is probably my favorite moment on the record. - Matt Maher
