"Much Afraid" as written by Stephen Daniel Mason, Charlie Lowell, Dan Haseltine and Matt Odmark....
Empty again
Sunken down so far
So scared to fall
I might not get up again

So I lay at your feet
All my brokenness
I carry all of my burdens to you

[Chorus]
All of these things
I've held up in vain
No reason nor rhyme
Just the scars that remain
Of all of these things
I'm so much afraid
Scared out of my mind
By the demons I've made
Sweet Jesus, you never ever let me go
Oh, sweet Jesus, never ever let me go

So happy to love
Yet so far to go
You lead me on to where I've never been before

[Chorus]

    General Commenti love this song because it describes how deep we are in our sin and how it's so hard to get out of it, but yet we are scared of where it will lead and how in the midst of this Jesus is faithful to never leave our side.

    General Commenti agree with you HMS. one prblem i have is the with the line "By the demons I've made" seems that word is used a bit liberally sometimes. maybe im over-reacting.

    General Commentwell it's not meaning that we made the demons literally, but by not obeying God we let the demons have more control of our life. Whenever we turn away from God, we are turning to satan and giving him a chance to push our life further into sin.

    General Commenti like this song a lot, especially after reading "Hinds Feet in High Places" by Hannah Hurnard, which the songs about. it's so meaningful if you read the book and then listen to the song.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me because it reminds me of the time when I was backsliding. Not that that's a good thing, mind you, but it just encapsulates how I felt at that time perfectly- out of steam and overloaded. Sometime this year, I had to go for vocal auditions to make it into my church's vocal class(not that anyone didn't make it in) and I really hadn't prepared any song, but I managed to settle on this song because it means the most to me of all the christian songs i've heard. To me its content is pretty self-explanatory- sin is overcoming his life and he needs to get out of it by laying his burdens at God's feet. Which is what we forget at times when we try to face our burdens with the strength of a human being.
