Who You Say You Are

 

Who You Say You Are


"This song is one my favorite songs I've ever written. So many people (unbelievers and believers) don't know the full extent of their beliefs, and this song communicates the truth that Jesus isn't offended by our wondering and encourages us to add direction and hope to our wondering. Even when we know and believe what he said, life challenges those truths. After everything is said and done, he is the truth and the life, he's the only way." (Kierre Bjorn Lindsay)

“‘Who You Say You Are’ reminds the church that we are a work in progress together, and it is Christ doing the work in us. Our response leads us back to him even in the midst of our imperfections, even the imperfections of our very faith and understanding.” (Isaac Gill)

“This song is a reminder to ourselves, that God is a good God. And if He really is who he says he is, we should never be afraid to come to him with our doubts or our questions. He who is the truth can, believe it or not, also handle it very well.” (Jenny Wahlström

You, you don’t see us for our failures
You, you always find the best in us

So we fall into you
We know you’ll raise us up
