“I’ve Never Needed a Song More”

Michael Farren Gives Us the Story Behind the Song “Fighting For Us”

Hey CCMmagazine.com fans & friends, Michael Farren [former lead singer/founder of the band Pocket Full Of Rocks] is sharing this song with us before of the October 5 release of his new album, Fighting For Us.  This is the first solo project from Michael. The title track from this album came during a hard season when Michael, a worship pastor at Gateway Church Franklin, was struggling to hold onto the truth of the lyrics. This whole project is full of songs of praise—even amidst questions—and with an echo of belonging throughout.

 

 

Fighting For Us
You are not flesh and bone
You are not weak or slow
You’re everything brave and bold
You’re fighting for us

You are not distant and cold
You heart’s not angry or closed
And even in ways we don’t know
You’re fighting for us

You won’t hold back
When it comes to Your children
You fiercely defend us
‘Til we stand delivered
You’re fighting for us
Always fighting for us
You don’t back down
Facing armies of thousands
You speak one word
And they scatter around us
You’re fighting for us
Always fighting for us

You’ve never closed your eyes
You’ve never been surprised
Whatever war may rise
You’re fighting for us

You move with holy rage
In all your miraculous ways
We simply stand here amazed
‘Cause You’re fighting for us

How great the love
The furious love
Of the one true Father
How great the love
The conquering love
Of the one true Father
