This is a song that Todd and I originally wrote leading up to Advent. We were both looking at resources for different series that our churches were doing, and wanted a song that pointed both to the desperation the people must have felt combined with the hope for the Messiah. When we finished the song, we felt like it had turned into both an Advent resource and a song that can be sung throughout the year. I have attached a chord chart that goes with it (I think we recorded that in G), and by all means, feel free to use the song! The songs we write are written with our local churches needs in mind, and we love to see that go beyond our doors.
