Rescue - Lauren Daigle

The Experience: I hear your SOS your SOS... You aren't alone. Aren't abandoned.
The Vibe: Hope. Loved.
The Topic: God.
The Value: Hope.
The Tension: In the middle of the darkest night... broken you're innocence stolen (You are very lost and alone.) VS. I will send out an army to find you... I will rescue you (God cares, and he is coming to save you.).

Music video: Lauren Daigle alone on a glacier. In black, on the barren rocky ice. In pure white, on the green hills higher up. And in a burnt orange gown, on the stark white snow. Those are very different places. But the video begins and ends in the barren black where Daigle sings most of the song.

The Meaning of Rescue: Lauren Daigle sings the whole song by herself. But she spends most of the video in black - she's the one who needs saving, not the other way around. Rescue isn't a cry for help. It's a promise. It's not an empty promise that only urges her to hope. Instead, it's the shout of God coming to the rescue. Lauren's broken. But she's not forgotten, not hopeless. He hears her cry for help. He has always heard her. And his is on his way over and over to be her shelter and armor. That's the only kind of hope that's not empty: the type that stops being hope and starts being rescue, here and now. And that's the kind of hope God offers.

Ask yourself: Have you ever been rescued? Do you need rescue now? Is God there for you?

Album: Look Up Child - 2019

LYRICS:


You are not hidden
There's never been a moment
You were forgotten
You are not hopeless
Though you have been broken
Your innocence stolen

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS
Your SOS

I will send out an army
To find you in the middle of the darkest night
It's true, I will rescue you

There is no distance
That cannot be covered
Over and over
You're not defenseless
I'll be your shelter
I'll be your armor

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army
To find You in the middle of the darkest night
It's true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching
To reach you in the middle of the hardest fight
It's true, I will rescue you

I hear the whisper underneath your breath
I hear you whisper you have nothing left

I will send out an army
To find you in the middle of the darkest night
It's true, I will rescue you
I will never stop marching
To reach you in the middle of the hardest fight
It's true, I will rescue you

Oh, I will rescue you
