Behind the Songs: Help Me

Song stories & lyrics from the album Fire in the Night: Help Me


In continuing my ‘story behind the song’ series, next up is Help Me. The best glance into this song is a video explanation I did right after I wrote it last year. This song is themed around Psalm 91, hinging on one of its closing verses: “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him for he acknowledges my name.” This song basically comes down to a name, the name above all names: Jesus.

Help Me

Help me, help me
I don’t want to be manipulated by a personality
Help me, help me
I don’t want to be catapulted into a false reality
Help me, help me
It has to be You …

Jesus

Help me, help me
As the arrows fly by day
As the terrors come my way
Oh help me, help me
Though ten thousand fall by my side
I’ll see with my own eyes how You’ll
Help me, help me
I’m crying out to You
You are my fortress

Jesus

I will rest in You, find shelter from the storm
I will rest in the shadow of Almighty
I will rest in You, find shelter from the storm
I will rest in the shadow of Almighty
I will rest in You, find shelter from the storm
I will rest in the shadow of You …

Jesus
