A Song called “Never Let Him Out of Sight”

A Song called “Never Let Him Out of Sight”

There is not a lot of writing out there combining my Christian faith and my diagnosis of bipolar. And so I decided to write a song, about who I am and what probably many people are like.

Never Let Him Out of Sight

I grew up soft, not being too loud
My foundation was as firm as a cloud
Hid from the spotlight without much thought
Hiding ‘mongst the crowd
I loved anything that was taboo on fire
Forsaking men, forsaking  the One Above
I followed whatever my heart desired
All for the sake of Love
Looking back,
I lost more than I could take
It broke me, left me in shambles
It was a gamble
But for His sake
There’s a better you, a better me
You just have to believe.
Now I see, all but plainly
There’s a better way
I broke the rules again, feeling the heat
But this time I held You dear,
Knowing you were always near.
I won’t accept defeat
I rode through the storm, riding the wave
I slept through the night, holding on to the day
And though it was trying, I know one thing is true
I belong to You.
It’s crazy, but looking back
It was all meant to be
Love and pain made me more humane
1 step back but 2 steps forward
There’s a better you, a better me
You just have to believe
Now I see, all but plainly
There’s a better way
Stand up and fight
Never give up
Don’t do wrong, but do right
Never give up,
Never let Him out of sight
