"Constant" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Timothy Ryan Skipper, Collin Rigsby and Jared Keith Rigsby....
I worked for so long
With the weakest of hands on the coldest of shores
The wind and the rain
Fill me with doubt, but you've never been wrong before

I pray for the sun
Some guidance, some truth, some glimpse of the things to come
With only your song
Your love made me strong when all hope was gone

All through the night I was falling
Straining to hear your voice calling
You never gave up, never gave in, never quite gave up on me
You are my constant

We always want time
To hoard up our treasures and bury our dead
It's true what he said
The foxes have holes, but the king has no place for his head

I pray for relief
But relief doesn't come, just the will to press on
With only your song
Your love makes me strong when all hope is gone

All through the night I was falling
Straining to hear your voice calling
You never gave up, never gave in, never quite gave up on me
You are my constant

All through the night your love is faithful to me
All through the night your love is right here with me
All through the night your love is holding me

All through the night I was falling
Straining to hear your voice calling
You never gave up, never gave in, never quite gave up on me
You are my constant

All through the night I was falling
Straining to see your light shining
You never gave up, never gave in, never quite gave up on me
You are my constant
You are my constant
You are my constant
You are my constant

    General CommentConstant. This word simply says it all. The song is a love letter, a poem if you will, to God.

    "I worked for so long
    With the weakest of hands on the coldest of shores
    The wind and the rain
    Fill me with doubt but you've never been wrong before

    I pray for the sun
    Some guidance, some truth, some glimpse of the things to come
    With only your song
    Your love made me strong when all hope was gone"

    Times are tough. It's hard to stay in the game when your hands and your strength are not enough to face the cold shores of life. The battering winds of lies, deceipt, and ridicule batter you down and tear away hope. What do you want when this happens? You want it to stop. You want things to get better. You want that storm to cease and the sun to pierce through. And what does it do? Why, it increases in intensity!

    "I pray for relief
    But relief doesn't come, just the will to press on
    With only your song
    Your love makes me strong when all hope is gone"

    God's Will is absolutely, 100% perfect. There is no flaw to is plan, because He himself is perfect. That being said, we don't always like what He does for us. He allows storms to come our way. Trials and tribulation are part of life. They come free of charge, but at a cost to us. When all we want is relief, sometimes, all we get is more torment. But there is a promise of God's that defeats this death, this evil. It is hope. It is peace. It is "the will to press on". It is love. No matter what happens, Christ is the constant. He really never gives up, even though it feels like it sometimes. Most of the time. He allows for a deeper revelation to stir in our hearts that gives defeat a lethal blow. The chorus says it well:


    "All through the night I was falling
    Straining to hear your voice calling
    You never gave up, never gave in, never quite gave up on me
    You are my constant"

    Fantastic song and fantastic meaning. House of Heroes does it again :)
