04. When My Heart Runs Dry

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

When my heart runs dry
And there's no song to sing
No holy melody
No words of love within
I recall the height from which
This fragile heart has slipped...

Chorus:
And I'll remember You
I will turn back and do
The things I used to do
for the love of You
Lord, I'll remember You
I will turn back and do
The things I used to do
for the love of You

You are my soul's desire
You are the hope within
You bring my heart to life
You make my spirit sing
I recall the height from which
This fragile heart has slipped...




Behind the Song:
'I wrote this song at a time when I felt quite dry in my walk with God. Id noticed the songs had stopped flowing, and knew this was because of where I was at spiritually. Writing a worship song is about 'seeing' and 'singing'. To sing something fresh, you first of all have to see something fresh. A new glimpse of God, or some revelation from scripture that hits you in a new way.

This song is a little bit weird, in that its a song written about not being able to write songs! 'When my heart runs dry, and theres no song to sing, no holy melody, no words of love within.' For the rest of the song, I delve into Revelation 2 Jesus tells the church, 'Remember the height from which you have fallen, repent, and do the things you did at first.'' - Matt Redman
