Lyrics

If I were you
I would’ve given up on me by now
I would’ve labeled me a lost cause
'Cause I feel just like a lost cause

If I were you
I would’ve turned around and walked away
I would’ve labeled me beyond repair
'Cause I feel like I’m beyond repair

But somehow you don’t see me like I do
Somehow you’re still here

You’re the God who stays
You’re the God who stays
You’re the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You’re the God who stands
With wide-open arms
And you tell me nothing I have ever done
Could separate my heart from the God who stays

I used to hide
Every time I thought I let you down
I always thought I had to earn my way
But I’m learning you don’t work that way

Somehow you don’t see me like I do
Somehow you’re still here

You’re the God who stays
You’re the God who stays
You’re the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You’re the God who stands
With wide-open arms
And you tell me nothing I have ever done
Could separate my heart from the God who stays

My shame can’t separate
My guilt can’t separate
My past can’t separate
I’m yours forever

My sin can’t separate
My scars can’t separate
My failures can’t separate
I’m yours forever

No enemy can separate
No power of hell can take away
Your love for me will never change
I’m yours forever

'Cause You’re the God who stays
You’re the God who stays
You’re the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You’re the God who stands
With wide-open arms
And you tell me nothing I have ever done
Could separate my heart from the God who stays

You’re the God who stays
You’re the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You’re the God who stands
With wide-open arms
And you tell me nothing I have ever done
Could separate my heart from the God who stays
