about

Asia wrote this song when she was 16, after a bout of crying on the kitchen floor. It is a song about hope in spite of absolutely overwhelming odds, about knowing that God is truly the only thing we have or need.

lyrics

Lift Me
Words and music by Asia Wall © 2012
Guitar arrangement by Daniel Wall © 2012

I think it's sweet when you rain down
I'm only full when you're around
And all the years that I've pulled through
I know it's only because of you

You are a father to the orphan
You are the reason I'm not starving
I live my whole life just to love you
I put no other god above you

So Father, please lift me
Above my insecurity
And Father, please hold me
I want no one to know me like You do

You are my comfort in the storm
The dream at night that keeps me warm
I never want to walk away
Lord keep me still in You I pray

You are the Lover in my life
You are the Husband I'm the wife
You built this home with Your two hands
I know that with You I can stand

So Father, please lift me
Above my insecurity
And Father, please hold me
I want no one to know me like You do
