“Stay close to me when the night is long. When my heart is weak, still your word is strong.”
This modern day, confessional psalm cries out for the Father’s hand of help, the company of Jesus, and “the force of Heaven” in the midst of struggle. The song leads the worshipper to ask God for reminders of the future while enduring the wait for redemption. Stay Close is a ready companion for a person or community who is feeling alone.
