01. Stay

Genesis
by Joy Williams



 

Run, it's always your instinct
Run, it feels like the right thing to turn your back and run
Where, where are you going as fast as you can run
Slow down, come on, take a breath
Why don't you rest
What's your hurry
C'mon
Stay
Just stay
You're where you're meant to be
You're no runaway
Why don't you stay
So long, yesterday's gone
So long to all of your worries that won't add a day to life
Slow down, come on, take a breath
Why don't you rest
What's your hurry
Lay your weary head down in the fields of green
Soak your soul now in the quiet streams
Where, where are you going as fast as you can

Behind the Song:
'I was in a season of really feeling frustrated with God of not understanding why it had been such a long journey to make this album. U2’s album had come out and I had been inspired by them and some other artists – loving the strength of those guitars. Some friends at my church spoke to me and said, “You can’t be angry that you’re in this spot because that’s exactly where God wants you. Sometimes God just wants us to be uncomfortable for a bit so that we remember that we aren’t the ones in control.” So this song came out of that whole train of thought. When God says, “Be still and know that I am God,” there really is merit to that.' - Joy Williams
