I wrote this song while praying for someone I knew was going through a really tough time, even though this person wouldn’t admit it. Sometimes things are so bad we won’t admit that we need hope.
I made the lyrics repetitive because we have to take a truth past our heads and down deep into our hearts before it really resonates–and that often takes repetition.
Why so downcast, O my soul?
I wrote this song (melody) while in Mexico at Casa de Luz. It’s based on Psalm 42:11.
