10. Miss A Thing

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

Last night I dreamed that I was sneaking up on Babylon / I awoke to find it was the very street I’m on / I close my eyes but what I see won’t go away / Away / The city closed the shelter down the street / We’d rather pay to save a tree than give our brother something warm to eat / It breaks my heart that we’re so incomplete, yeah, oh // Maybe there’s a reason for it / But it’s so hard to see / So many broken people / Living in this lonely city / When it feels right to give up / I get up and realize Your blood can cover all these stains / And You don’t ever miss a thing / No, no You don't ever miss a thing // I catch the news on channel 3 about once a week / But you see so much more / You see the husband flee the scene / You hear the woman hit the floor / Crying out, “Can You still save me, Lord?” /// You see it all ‘cause there is nothing You can’t see / And You can free us all ‘cause there is nothing You can’t free / And even when we fall You come and meet us at our knees / You don’t ever miss a thing, no

Behind the Song:
"I was so burdened one night flying home from a show. I looked out my passenger window and couldn’t help but think about all the brokenness, all the corruption and abuse and violence. It was too much to take in. If I could barely handle it, what about God? How must He grieve and burn with anger at the injustices in the world? Later on it struck me that God couldn’t handle it - He took action. Jesus is God’s response to the sin in our world. He sees it all, and by the blood of the Lamb He can free us all too." - Jimmy Needham
