  Artist List   /   Rebecca St. James   /   God


         


05. Abba Father

God
by Rebecca St. James



 

I'm feeling like the eagle that rises
Flies above the earth and its troubles
Oh yes he knows that there are valleys below
But under his wings there's a stronger power

Oh Father- You are my strength
On You I wait upon

Chorus:

You make the road rise up to meet me
You make the sun shine warm upon my face
The wind is at my back and the rain falls soft
God I lift You high- You are my Abba

Running on this road to the finish line
The only road for me is the narrow
Not gonna stop or even look to the side

When I fix my eyes on You Jesus
Oh Father (Abba)- You are my strength
Now more than ever

Chorus
Repeat

Behind the Song:
'In Israel, one of the first words little Jewish boys say is 'Abba' (Daddy). As this song was being written, I found this verse: 'You received the spirit of sonship. And by him we cry 'Abba, Father'... we are God's children.' (Romans 8:15,16-- NIV)' - Rebecca St. James
