Here to Stay (Acoustic) – Anthem Worship

About This Song

This song was written in collaboration between Anthem Worship and Evergreen Records. The goal was to write a song for the season that the church was in and could be sung at services.

The total time between writing the song and being released as an acoustic video was less than 3 weeks. It was just one of those things that came together FAST.

The song originally debuted at the church's “Vision Weekend” in March 2022, with people asking where they could hear it, so we recorded an acoustic arrangement to get a video out ASAP.

Brianna Cruz ended up singing the song and man she CRUSHED it. After running through it like twice she had the conviction of someone who had been singing it for YEARS.

The video was directed by one of our regular collaborators, Jared Jamieson (amazing pop producer and ALSO talented video creator), who also assisted on the production of the track.

Lyrics

Verse 1
Where do I turn to
Where do I run
When my mind says it's over
You say it's not done

In all of the chaos
When the war has begun
When the world says it's over
I know you're not done

Chorus
You're the God of the future
The God of the past
The God of the moment
Wherever I'm at

Your victory is final
It can't be undone
The story's been written
The battle's been won

You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay
You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay

Verse 2
So where do we turn to
Where do we run
When the world says it's over
We know you're not done

Chorus
You're the God of the future
The God of the past
The God of the moment
Wherever I'm at

Your victory is final
It can't be undone
The story's been written
The battle's been won

You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay
You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay

Bridge
When sickness takes control
He remains, He remains

When death is all I know
He remains, He remains

When religion shuts the door
He remains, He remains

When I can't pray anymore
He remains, He remains

When I've lost all that I know
He remains, He remains

When kingdoms come and go
He remains, He remains

When my faith is at a loss
He remains, He remains

When we nailed him to a cross
He remains, He remains

Chorus
You're the God of the future
The God of the past
The God of the moment
Wherever I'm at

Your victory is final
It can't be undone
The story's been written
The battle's been won

You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay
You're the God of today
You're the God here to stay
