Here to Stay (Studio) by Anthem Worship

About this Song

This is the studio version of Here to Stay by Anthem Worship – which was long-awaited after the acoustic version was released a few months prior.

The goal with this was to create a more polished, pop version of the song people can come to know and love. We produced this in partnership with Jared Jamieson (an amazing pop producer). It turned out great!

About Anthem Worship

Anthem Worship is the worship collective based out of Anthem x LLUC in Loma Linda, California.

Anthem was started in 2020, during the height of the pandemic on YouTube in lieu of in-person services. Rather than simply livestreaming standard worship service, the group was noted for the innovative approach to “studio church” through polished, internet-specific content that included original songs and unique arrangments of classic worship songs, along with polished studio-filmed teachings.

Anthem Worship released their debut EP in August of 2021, Universal Hearts, which included the original songs “You Are Strong” and “Universal Hearts,” along with the well-received electro-pop cover of Elevation Worship's “My Testimony.”

In March of 2022, the song Here to Stay was written. Impressed that the song was exactly what the world needed at the time when the pandemic was resurging and the war was breaking out in Europe, Anthem pastor Josh Jamieson and the team decided to release an acoustic version of the song within two weeks of writing it.

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
