Lyrics

On the nights when the dark last a little bit longer
When the wind and the storm is a little bit stronger
When the fear in my heart dips a little bit deeper
When my faith to stand gets a little bit weaker
Where could I run to?
Where could I go?
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go, whoa
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
When the days up ahead look a little bit brighter
But the grip of the past holds a little bit tighter
I’m reminded Your grace never asks for perfection
Oh I’m restored ’cause I’m Yours and I stand forgiven
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go, whoa
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
And even in the middle of a struggle
And even when it’s hard to remember
You alone are my defense when
I’m standing on Your promises and I know
That even in the thick of the battle
And even through the valley of the shadows
You alone are my defense when
I’m standing on Your promises so
Where could I run to?
Where could I go?
Even when it feels like my world is shaken
Even when I’ve had all that I can take
I know
You never let me go
And even when the waters won’t stop rising
Even when I’m caught in the dead of a night
I know
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then
You’re with me, yeah
No matter how it ends
You’re with me even then

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

We live in a time when anxiety, worry and fear are seemingly at an all-time high. Some of those who struggle say that often it's the lack of control over their circumstances that trigger attacks. Digging deeper into the research we find that many struggle because they believe there is no one to catch them if they fall. In fact, a significant study was done several years ago that found Americans believe they have a lot of "friends". (Many citing friends on social media.) However, when asked how many "friends" they had whom they could turn to in a catastrophic event, a large percentage of those surveyed said they had no one. Most people don't believe they are loved and valued by a God who created them. They have a hard time understanding that He, indeed, can and will catch them when they fall. So many believe they have somehow disqualified themselves from His love and help. I love that this song will speak something different, truth, into our lives.

"Even Then has become a daily prayer for me and for my family. In the past year I’ve seen some of the most exciting things and been a part of Jesus moving in some ways I’ve never seen before. And it causes me to wake up some days and I feel excitement for the world around me; and I feel loved and I feel joy about going out and telling others about Jesus. And there are some days where I wake up and I just don’t feel that way. I give more my trust over to the fears and anxieties that I have. But I know that in Proverbs 28 it says this 'Those who trust in themselves are fools but those who walk and wisdom are kept safe.' I want to wake up and be the kind of person, that no matter how I feel that day, I trust and stand on the Promises of God – promises that say, 'in this world we will have trouble but take heart Jesus has overcome the world.' And if that’s the truth and I’m standing on then I can trust him even then." - Micah Tyler
