TobyMac “Help Is On The Way (Maybe Midnight)”

“I wrote ‘Help is on the Way (Maybe Midnight)’ after a season in the valley of sad songs. With a broken heart after losing my firstborn son and stepping almost immediately into quarantine everything was dark. I woke up one day and turned to the Psalms. I read that ‘God is rolling up His sleeves.’ What beautiful imagery. This picture turned me from having hope to yelling it from the rooftops. The God of all creation is rolling up His sleeves on our behalf. What a promise. We are not forgotten, not at all. That very morning I started writing;.”

‘It may be midnight or mid day,
never early, never late
He’s gon’ stand by what he claims,
I’ve lived enough left to say…
help is on the way.’
