Keep Us Safe - Carrie Underwood



The Experience: Carrie's amazing voice brings us her new hit (taken direct from the 'All-Star Salute to the Troops'), a prayer that God keep us safe, and all our loved ones. Something especially true for all those in the Troops.

The Meaning of Carrie Underwood's Keep Us Safe is a prayer, with all five parts. 
1. When things get dark ("rivers run dry... hope gets lost... the storm just won't let up") we start to pray - we stop playing superhero and get down on our knees "when we get scared, let this be our prayer."
2. Prayer is never about me knowing everything. We're all learners at prayer, or, as Carrie sings, "steps in the wrong direction... asking Him a thousand questions." He accepts that. He just wants us to try.
3. We don't pretend God's Santa Claus 'I was good, so now you have to help me'. Carrie's prayer is "even when we get lost." God loves the humble, not the self-righteous.
4. We go from knees to get up on our feet again, trusting He will help us. "Make us brave... Keep us strong and unafraid.
5. We don't forget God once danger's past. He remains a friend to us ("I know we don't walk alone") and we remain friends with Him ("Keep our eyes on Heaven.") 

Ask Yourself: What do I pray for?


LYRICS:
Deserts grow cold
Rivers run dry
We give up on each other 
Without thinking twice
Hope gets lost
Can't see the dawn
When the storm just won't let up, 
Give us the faith to carry on
When we get scared
Let this be our prayer

God keep us safe tonight
Keep our eyes toward the skies
Send down an army of angels
To make us brave
And keep us strong and unafraid
God keep us safe

We walk a thousand steps in the wrong direction
Broken and bruised, wearing tattered shoes
Asking Him a thousand questions
But we go on
Trying to get back home
Through the struggles and the troubles 
I know we don't walk alone
Even when we get lost 
Through the valleys we crossed

God keep us safe, safe tonight
Keep our eyes toward the skies
Send down an army of angels
To make us brave
And keep us strong and unafraid
God keep us safe
God keep us safe

Oh God keep us safe
Unafraid
And keep our eyes on the heavens and give us grace
Send down an army of angels
To make us brave
Keep us strong and unafraid
Keep us strong and unafraid
God keep us safe
Keep us safe
