this song came out right in the middle of my abuse and saved me as I clinged to the lyrics.

The band is "Jars of Clay" and the song is called "Flood."

I highly recomend it, at least listen to it once. I'm sure many of you have heard it before, but I just found it and I remember how powerful it was for me back then.


Flood:

Rain, rain on my face
It hasnt stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

Chorus:

But if I cant swim after forty days
And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up - when Im falling
Lift me up - Im weak and Im dying
Lift me up - I need you to hold me
Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

Downpour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean, Im losing control
Dark sky all around
I cant feel my feet touching the ground

[chorus]

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
Dry the streams still flowing
Cast down all the waves of sin
And guilt that overthrow me

[chorus]

Lift me up - when Im falling
Lift me up - Im weak and Im dying
Lift me up - I need you to hold me
Lift me up - keep me from drowning again

I don't think that I fully relized or understood the lyrics or Why they were so important to me then--NOW I Know!

Wow that is just what I needed right now. Thanks Logan. Been a wild roller coaster beginning to the weekend. Good song. I have never heard but I would like to hear it sung.
