This is a very singable and easy to learn chorus by Troy Hatfield, one of the musical leaders of Mars Hill Church in Grand Rapids, MI. The lyric is a beautiful reminder of Psalm 46:12 which tell us that because God is with us--especially in the midst of trouble--we do not need to be afraid.
Fear--it's being thrown at us and sold to us and used to manipuate and control folks in so many ways. We all have our own personal fears as well. We hope and pray that little choruses like this will help us respond to fear with Spirit-centered love and strength and freedom.
Note: The audio for this song is a simple live demo at this point. Troy is finishing up a more produced studio version and we will use that as soon as it is available. If you purchase this simple demo and want the studio version when it comes out please just let us know. Also, the song was initially called, "For He Is Here." Troy was very open to the suggestion that other pronouns and images for God be used so that the song is not exclusively using a masculine image for the Divine. You'll see our suggestions (God, He, She) on the lyric pages and sheet music, but the audio here only uses the original male pronoun. Please "hear" beyond that and imagine repeating the song using "God" for the first verse, "He" for the second, and "She" for the third.
