02. If We've Ever Needed You

Until The Whole World Hears
by Casting Crowns



 

Here I cry, Lord, we pray
Our faces down, our hands are raised
You called us out, we turned away
We’ve turned away
With shipwrecked faith, the idols rise
We do what is right in our own eyes
Our children now will pay the price
We need Your light, Lord, shine Your light
If we’ve ever needed You
Lord, it’s now, Lord, it’s now
We are desperate for Your hand
We’re reaching out, we’re reaching out
All our hearts, all our strength
With all our minds, we’re at Your feet
May Your kingdom come in our hearts and
lives
Let Your church arise, let Your church arise
We’re reaching out
We’re reaching out
We need You now
Revive us now
We need You now

Behind the Song:
“This is a song about repentance: personal repentance and corporate repentance as the church. I’d been trying to write all day, but I felt like I was tying words in knots. I went to bed, couldn’t sleep, was up and down until about 2:30 in the morning. My wife, Melanie, sat up in the bed and said, ‘You just need to say, Speak, Lord, for your servant hears!’ And then she rolled over and went back to sleep! I knew she was right, so I went downstairs to the piano. That’s when I realized I’d been humming a tune in my head for hours, so I pounded out the chords, and the first verse just poured out. That’s when you know it’s bigger than you, when you know you didn’t come up with the lyric. I’m not that creative! When God whispers in my ear — that’s a God-line.” - Mark Hall, Casting Crowns
