Why it made the cut: If I had to point to one song that got me through the horrors of 9/11 ten years ago, this would be it. I remember putting this song on repeat while driving to and from work, and even at home in those post-9/11 nights when sleep eluded me. It helped restore peace and focused my thoughts on the God who has promised to never leave or forsake me.
The beauty of this song–written, by the way, by Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah–lies in the simplicity of the lyrics: an ode to Jehovah Shammah, the One who is always there with us, ever living, ever faithful, ever sure.
Artist: Natalie Grant is often described as an unrivaled powerhouse vocalist, but she brings to the table additional skills as a formidable songwriter and riveting performer. Natalie enjoys the high honor of having won the Dove Award for Female Vocalist of the Year for four consecutive years (2006-2009), as well as a steady flow of accolades from both Christian and mainstream media.
But beyond her burgeoning music career, Natalie has chosen to take a passionate stand as an advocate for victims of human trafficking. She established the Home Foundation in 2005 to fight this evil and now is founder and chair of the board of Abolition International, the Home Foundation’s successor organization.
And I rely on your patience
When I face the unknown
And because of You …
I am not alone
