09. Abide With Me

Saints and Sinners
by Matt Maher



 

I have a home, eternal home

But for now I walk this broken world

You walked it first, You know our pain

But You show hope can rise again up from the grave



Abide with me, Abide with me

Don’t let me fall, and don’t let go

Walk with me and never leave

Ever close, God abide with me



There in the night, Gethsemane

Before the cross, before the nails

Overwhelmed, alone You prayed

You met us in our suffering and bore our shame

Oh love that will not ever let me go

Love that will not ever let me go

You never let me go

Love that will not ever let me go

Oh You never let us go



And up ahead, eternity

We’ll weep no more, we’ll sing for joy, abide with me

Behind the Song:
I've always been inspired by hymns. My maternal grandparents were a Baptist preacher and an organist. Being raised Catholic, it's strange that the first time you start hearing some of these hymns, there's something in your DNA that resonates. One was a really beautiful hymn, "Abide with Me." As a believer, even my doubt and disillusionment have to meet Jesus at the cross. I think in our walk with God we get surprised when we end up right back where we started. In some ways, that's the Christian life-learning how to die so you can experience resurrection. I think sometimes the aching we feel is the realization that we will always be restless until we reach heaven. We have moments where we get glimpses of what that feels like, but there's still a haunting that happens. That's what inspired this song-reaching a point where somebody's willing to at least ask Jesus to help them with that disillusionment and that fear. - Matt Maher
