The God Who Stays – Matthew West

Single

Verse 1:
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

Pre-Chorus:
Oh, but somehow You don’t see me like I do
Somehow You’re still here

Chorus:
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 can separate my
heart
From the God who stays

Verse 2:
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

Pre-Chorus:
‘Cause somehow You don’t see me like I do
Somehow You’re still here

Chorus:
You’re the God who stays (You’re the God who stays)
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 (You’re the God who stands)
With wide open arms (With wide open arms)
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my
heart
From the God who stays

Bridge:
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

Chorus:
You’re the God who stays (You’re the God who stays)
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 (You’re the God who stands)
With wide open arms (With wide open arms)
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can 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 can separate my
heart
From the God who stays
