You Will Be My Song - Don Moen - Lyrics

Sometimes finding yourself again is the hard part.  We lose the song on our heart.  You Will Be My Song is perhaps Don Moen’s greatest songs.  He has been through the desert and he finds himself again – in a place we all know, but sometimes forget.

You know my needs, all that’s unspoken … You hold the pieces of all that’s been broken
Even when a melody won’t come … Even when my words are not enough

I know that place well, it is hard to get out of bed in the morning, hard to face a new day.  It seems all I have strength for is to complain of how little strength I have… That is when God comes to me and Yeshua (Jesus) lifts me into his arms again.

Before I call I know You’ll hear me … When hope is gone still You are near me
Even when I feel like I’m alone … I know You’ll never leave me on my own


 

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice

You Will Be My Song – Lyrics – Don Moen

You know my needs, all that’s unspoken
You hold the pieces of all that’s been broken
Even when a melody won’t come
Even when my words are not enough

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice
When I’m lost for words to say
You will be my strength
And You will lift me up
You will be my portion
And my everlasting love
You will be my song

Before I call I know You’ll hear me
When hope is gone still You are near me
Even when the answer is delayed
Even through the darkness I will say

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice
When I’m lost for words to say
You will be my strength
And You will lift me up
You will be my portion
And my everlasting love
You will be my song

Oh
Oh, You’re my song
Oh
Oh, … my song
Oh
Oh…

Even when I feel like I’m alone
I know You’ll never leave me on my own

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice
When I’m lost for words to say
You will be my strength
You will lift me up
You will be my portion
And my everlasting love

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice
When I’m lost for words to say
You will be my strength
You will lift me up
You will be my portion
And my everlasting love
You will be my song

Please Correct Me!

 

You Will Be My Song – Lyrics

Written By: Don Moen

 

Behind The Song: You Will Be My Song

This was the first song I wrote after a very dry season.  I had been through a personally challenging time for a couple of years and it seemed I had lost my desire to write.  I had more questions than I had answers, and nothing seemed to fit into the traditional praise and worship songs I had heard and sung.

As I made a step of faith to begin writing, I was reminded of a time many years ago when the Lord spoke so clearly to me from Psalm 40:3… “I have put a new song from your mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see it and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.”  I realized that when I didn’t have a song to sing, He would be my song.

Don Moen

 

Have you lost your desire to sing?  Maybe due to circumstances that are beyond your control, like the loss of a job, a broken relationship that caused hurt and pain, divorce, sickness or maybe the death of a loved one, you have lost your song…; you’ve lost your desire to sing.

When your bank account is filled and everything seems to be going your way, it’s easier to lift your voice in praise, but when you’re in the middle of a storm, and your heart is heavy, you can lose your song.  I know.  I’ve been there.

A few years ago, I found myself going through a desert experience, wondering where God was.  After not writing a song for two years, one of my dear friends who leads my intercessor team said to me, “Don, it’s time for you to take your harp down from the tree and write again.”  She was referring to Psalm 137:2-3.  I told her, “I don’t have a melody in my heart anymore and it’s hard for me to sing because my heart is so heavy.  Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever sing again?”

The small group of friends and intercessors laid their hands on me and began to pray for healing and for new songs.  I was reminded of a powerful experience I had several years ago, before I had ever led worship or written a worship song.  In the middle of the night, I woke up and sensed God speaking to me so clearly to open my Bible to Psalm 40:3.  It says, “I have put a new song in your mouth, a song of praise unto our God.  Many will see it and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.”

Throughout the Bible, God gave songs of deliverance, songs of joy, songs in the night.  Psalm 42:8 says,  “By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me..”  Psalm 32:7 says, “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”  I needed God to give me His song, because I had lost mine.

When I sat at the piano to write after such a long dry spell, I was tentative.  I really didn’t know where to start, but I decided “honesty was the best policy.”  I began to write these words….

You know my needs
All that’s unspoken
You hold the pieces
Of all that’s been broken
Even when a melody won’t come
Even my words are not enough…

You will be my song
You will be my praise
You will be my voice
When I’m lost for words to say
You will be my strength
You will lift me up
You will be my portion
And my everlasting love.
You will be my song

As I began to write, I began to be healed, and slowly but surely, God was giving me a new song to sing.  “You Will Be My Song” was the first song I wrote for my new project.

If you have lost your desire to sing, my prayer is that God will be your song even in the darkest night.  He will be your praise when you don’t know how to praise, and He will be your voice when you don’t know what to say.  I know if God did this for me, He can do it for you!

For His Glory,

Don
