Watch over Me Lyrics

Words and music by Mitch McVicker

Hope, is all I have
But I don't know If I've got much left
'Cause I still feel the scars
Inside of my heart
And It just gets so hard

And I've heard
You take care of the birds
As you watch over all the matters of this world
So here I am
I am struggling, and oh how I need You
Watch over me

I wanna find
A place to rest
'Cause I am tired and there's an emptiness
I feel when I look back,
And I look into my past,
I can't seem to make that time pass


And If hope is all I have
Well then I hope hope grows and fills the emptiness
So when I look back, I will look past my past
And only see forgiveness


Oh here I am
I am struggling, oh, how I need You
Watch over me

From Mitch:
This song came about at a boy's home I visited, and played a concert at in Salina, KS. There were about forty boys there who were too young for prison but had committed some serious crimes. I began thinking about how much each of us is in need of God's guidance and how we each need to be protected from and rescued from ourselves. It seems that the only thing that separates terrible tragedy from wonderful goodness is God's grace. So this is my prayer that God would do for me what I don't have the courage to do for myself. It's my prayer that God would take me places I am too scared to go on my own.
... Mitch
