Your Love Has Called My Name

Stars

The third verse of “Stars” by the American Band Skillet brings to mind a couple of verses from Romans:

8:38 For I am certain of this: neither death nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities, nothing already in existence
and nothing still to come, nor any power,
8:39 nor the heights nor the depths,
nor any created thing whatever,
will be able to come between us and the love of God,
known to us in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And from Philippians:

4:6 Never worry about anything; but tell God all your desires of every kind
in prayer and petition shot through with gratitude,
4:7 and the peace of God which is beyond our understanding
will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
4:8 Finally, brothers, let your minds be filled with everything that is true,
everything that is honourable, everything that is upright and pure,
everything that we love and admire with whatever is good and praiseworthy.


Lyrics

You spoke a word and life began
Told oceans where to start and where to end
You set in motion time and space
But still you come and you call to me by name
Still you come and you call to me by name

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the one who holds the stars

The deepest depths, the darkest nights
Can’t separate, can’t keep me from your sight
I get so lost, forget my way
But still you love and you don’t forget my name

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
If you can calm the raging sea
You can calm the storm in me
You’re never too far away
You never show up too late
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the one who holds the stars

Your love has called my name
What do I have to fear?
What do I have to fear?
Your love has called my name
What do I have to fear?
What do I have to fear?

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
(Lifting up my heart)
If you can calm the raging sea
You can calm the storm in me
You’re never too far away
You never show up too late
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the one who holds the stars

You’re the one who holds the stars
