‘Never Alone’ – single
‘Never Alone’ is the second single from Ian Yates‘ forthcoming new album Between The Joy And The Sorrow Part 2. ‘Never Alone’ is about getting lost in the things we’ve seen. Losing site of what is right in front of us. Remembering God is and was always holding us. It’s about living in the tension of feeling alone, but we are never alone. It’s about looking back and seeing God’s grace, God holding us though the times we thought he’d left us.
