If We've Ever Needed You Lyrics

Hear our 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

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
We're reaching out

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

If we've ever needed You
Lord, it's now, Lord, it's now
We are desperate for Your hand
We're reaching out, reaching out

We need You now
Revive us now
We need You now

I think when our trials or burdens are beyond what we can carry, when it involves a loved one, that is when we DESPERATELY cry for His help. We ALWAYS need God but some trials will be more difficult.

The chorus implies we didn't need God before, but He alone sustains life. The chorus should say: We've always needed you, Lord even now. One might think times are tough now, but they have always been.

This is an absolute awesome song. It expresses this world as it is today. Whenever it comes on the radio, I have to stop what I am doing and sing along as it brings tears to my eyes.God Bless You all!
