Lyrical Friday - Daisy's Song

Happy Friday! 
I am so excited for today's lyrical post. I have played this song about a trillion times this week- OK, not really, but you get the point. Below I have included the personal account from the writer of this song and the story behind it. You are in for a perspective changing, life altering experience. 

God's love truly is stronger, strong enough for you and me. Strong enough to stand against the toughest trial yet gentle enough to pick us up from our weakest moments. May the Lord do a mighty work in your mind and heart as you take in the words of this song. May hope and perfect peace be settled in your heart. 

"Sometimes I sit down and try to write a song. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Other times it’s almost as if the song is writing me. It just comes. It’s a totally rare and holy moment when that happens and I’m always so humbled to be in the middle of it. Eight months ago, when we got the news that one of my best friend’s daughter – who happened to be my daughter’s best friend – had cancer, I was breathless and overwhelmed with heartache. The next morning several of us gathered together to pray for five year old Daisy Love Merrick and her family. During the prayer meeting I was flooded with the reality that the love of God is stronger than any storm that might come our way. Having a five year old daughter myself, I was absolutely thrashed by the idea of Daisy having cancer and wept for hours. Through the tears I sat down and had one of those holy moments where the song just kind of came. The lyrics are as follows…" -Dominic Balli 

Daisy's Song, Dominic Balli  

When that storm comes
Like a hurricane
And the sun seems far away
We will not fear the wind
We will not fear the waves
I can feel your calm within
When this life is shaken
By ragin’ seas
We are not gon’ be afraid
So if ya walk on waves and wind
Then hold my hand and I’ll walk again
This love is stronger than the blood that beats my heart
This love is deeper, than the pain of all these scars
This love goes farther than the hope in answer’s arms
This love is stronger
It’s strong enough for me
You lived our sorrows,
Befriended all our pain
All that we might rise again
You stole my sickness,
Rested in my disease
All that I might rest in thee
And you alone bring healing,
And for you I’ll wait
But we are not gon’ be afraid
We may be crushed but we are not ever forsaken
We may be struck down but we are not ever destroyed
Then when that fire comes to shine through me your glory
We are not gonna be afraid
