A new song is available now from multi-award-winning Canadian artist and songwriter Jordan St. Cyr. Titled “Rescue” (BEC Recordings).
St. Cyr, who penned the song with Jonathan Gamble and Justin Amundrud, shares, “‘Rescue’ was inspired by a two-week season where it felt like my family and I were being attacked on all sides. It started with the news of our youngest daughter potentially having eye surgery, our oldest daughter breaking her leg, myself losing a record deal, our youngest daughter battling seizures, our car breaking down twice, and all six of us getting food poisoning. Life felt impossible but the promise of Jesus held true. When things got chaotic our rescue was His peace. He is the calm in the storm and his faithfulness never left us. Not even once.”
“Oh I’ve been desperate,
cried those loud prayers
Like Job on his knees sayin’
Lord I need more than a little help
I’ve been surrounded,
felt fear on all sides
Like Daniel and the lions,
I know when I fight I don’t fight by myself
When I needed rescue
Jesus, You came through
Oh, in my hardest season, Your promise held true
Every time I’ve given in, Lord You prove it again
That You’re still my Savior now
Jesus, You came through when I needed rescue.”
– lyrics from “Rescue”
