13. Savior

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Well, who is this angry man I see
In the mirror looking back at me?
Itís a man whoís tired, a man whoís weak
And itís a man who needs a Savior

And who is this fearful little child
Crying out for home, lost in the wild?
With a lonely heart thatís fading fast
Itís a child who needs a Savior
A child who needs a Savior

And what is this longing in my soul
That I get so scared and angry?
I need more than just a little help
I need someone who will save me
Come and save me
I need someone to save me
Who will save me?
Come and save me

And who is this one nailed to a cross
Who would rather die than leave us lost?
Heís come to rescue us, come to set us free
Hallelujah, hallelujah
It is Christ the LordÖour Savior

Behind the Song:
"I cried as I wrote this song. Thatís not something that happens very often. ĎWho is this angry man I see in the mirror looking back at me? Itís a man whoís tired itís a man whoís weak, itís a man who needs a Savior.í This is the story of my life. This is me. This is as honest as Iíve ever been. One of the things that Iíve seen in my life the last couple years with all of the pain that has gone on around me and being in a place where Iím not in control Iíve found myself becoming very angry. I found myself becoming furious because I canít control this. This song just undoes me every time I hear it. ĎIím a man whoís tired, a man whoís weak, and Iím a man who just simply needs a Savior.í The bridge talks about not just needing a little help. A guy whoís drowning doesnít ask for a little help, he cries out save me! Iím dying! When the planeís going down you donít just need a little help. You need someone to save you, you need a Savior." - Steven Curtis Chapman

(Rom 7: 24-25; Luke 2: 11)
