STORY BEHIND THE SONG

The phrase "His love endures forever" occurs over 40 times in the Bible. Add to that more than 100 references to God as our "rock" or "fortress," "eternal" or "unchanging," among others, and you have a very big theme in the Bible of God as the one steady, safe, secure, eternal place we can put our hope and our trust. I wanted to find a fresh way to say that and came up with "permanent" for that purpose. When it feels like the world and the economy and everything around us is very shaky, people need to be reminded that there is still one thing that remains and does not change. The name of the Lord is a strong tower and we can RUN to Him and we'll be safe. We needed a fresh way to remember our unchanging foundation so we could grab onto Him and hold on for dear life when things around us are shaken up. All other ground is sinking sand! I hope this song encourages people to hang on to our One. Sure. Thing.


LYRICS

Hope
You are our hope
You're always close
You are the one sure thing we know
We rise and we fall
You're steady, You're strong
You're loving us all

You're faithful through and through
No one compares to You
In You our heart's content
Your love is permanent
You're our absolute
Jesus, the living proof
Our song will never end
Cause Your love is permanent

Lost
We would be lost
Shaken and tossed
If not for Your hands surrounding us
God You are great!
And with You we're safe
Now and always

You're constant through all generations
Our way and our destination
Always enough
Jesus we lift You up
