By Your Side

Hey everyone! Just got back from Winter Jam, a Christian concert with Tenth Avenue North, Fireflight, Third Day, Newsboys and a few other bands and speakers. During one of Tenth Avenue North’s songs, “By Your Side,” I was really touched by the lyrics so I have included them below.

By Your Side
Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

(Chorus 2x)

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I'll never let you go

(Chorus 2x)
I have probably heard this song about 50x or more (I really love this band), but I think tonight was the first time I really “heard” the lyrics, if that makes any sense. I feel like so often I’ll listen to music and if it has a great beat, I’m likely to like it without considering much of the lyrics. So I encourage you to really soak in these lyrics and THEN listen to the song below.

I pray that today we remember that the Lord is the only One worth chasing after. And may we cling to the Truth that He is, in fact, MORE than enough to satisfy our every desire and deepest longings.

In Him,

“By Your Side” – Tenth Avenue North
