Never Look Away

There are so many things in life we never plan for, so many people we never expect to come across, so many things we hope won't influence us for the worse, so many things to stand strong against...its hard, life is hard....but then again, God never said it would be easy. As Christians we are supposed to model our lives after Jesus' life...and his life was the farthest thing from easy you could get. But even through the tough stuff, God's always there for us. We just gotta keep going, keep Him in focus.

Never Look Away by Building 429


The water rages on tonight
And the storm is hiding the skyline
I try to see the northern shore
But the waves are much higher than before
From the deep Lord
You are, You're beckoning

You call out my name
Say don't be afraid cause I
I'm here just believe me
So I won't look at the waves
I'll look on your face and I
I'll walk when I see you
Lord give me faith
To never look away

Staring deep into Your eyes
I'm standing by Your strength
But fear and doubt they take my sight
And I begin to sink
Hear my plea Lord will You
Come rescue me

You call out my name
Say don't be afraid cause I
I'm here just believe me
So I won't look at the waves
I'll look on your face and I
I'll walk when I see you
Lord give me faith
To never look away

It's not that far to where You are
With outstretched arms
You're calling out my name
I'm gonna walk, I'm gonna fall
But You'll have my all

You've called me by name
And I'm not afraid
I'm here I believe you
I won't look at the waves
I'll look on your face and I
I'll walk when I see You
You've called me by name
And I'm not afraid
I'm here I believe you
I won't look at the waves
I'll look at your face and I
I'll walk when I see You
Lord give me faith to never look away
Aah Aah Never Look, Never look away.
Lord give me faith, to never look away.
Never look, never look away
