Some people try to listen to the bottom of a bottle
Some people try to listen to a needle in their arm
Some people try to listen to the money in their pocket
Some people try to listen to another's arms

You and I are not that different
We got a void and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say I love you
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of a Savior

Some people try to find it with blind ambition
Some people try to find it where no one else has gone
Some people try to find it in the crowns of victory
Some people get defeated and lose the strength to carry on

You and I are not that different
We got a void and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say I love you
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of a Savior
The voice of a Savior

Some people try to find it in the shadow of a steeple
Some people try to find it in the back row pew
Some people try to find it in the arms of Jesus
That's where I found it, how about you?

You and I are not that different
We got a void and we're just trying to fill it up
With something that'll give just a little peace
All we want is a hand to reach to
Open arms that say I love you
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of a Savior
The voice of a Savior
We'd give anything to hear
The voice of a Savior
The voice of a Savior
The voice of a Savior

    This song just has a strong meaning, for 7 years I fought with depression and suicidal thoughts. It is by his love that I have been saved. After my 7th suicide attempt, I am save in His arms. For years I tried to find my peace through other people and through their happiness, but putting my hope in them only hurt me more, because people will always fail us but Jesus. Wow He will never hurt us or let us down. That void was finally filled not too long ago, and I am the happiest I have been in years and just a few days ago my family made me choose church or choose home, and thinking about all the Lord has provided for me, I faithfully chose church. I am out on a limb with Jesus ever so close to me. I have chosen to give up on Him so many times but He always brings me right back and this time I'm not letting go.
    So more than words can ever say. This song is probably one of the best out there because it has so much meaning and power!
    Way to go mandisa!

    I was once one of those people that tried to fill my emptiness with temporary things. But once I turn my life to the lord, I knew that their is only one thing that can fill my emptiness and that was the joy of the lord. This song reminds me of when I once was lost and was looking for something. Now this song touches my heart and breaks me everytime I hear it.

    My father passed away recently. I was his caregiver and we were very close. I lost my mom ten years ago and my dad and I just got eachother through it, with the help of my children and the Lord. But this was such a horriffic loss that I have a hole in my heart. I have been a born again christian for over 22 years and I have never felt so loved and lonely all at the same time. The Lord sends us music or other things to talk to us sometimes and I heard this today and it made me feel so good. She is a very blessed women who God has sent to touch hearts everywhere. Spread the word!

    Jesus christ is the summation of all the human heart aches to find. To know. To have as its own. The author of creation and the ultimate purpose and the reason for being. To look into the eyes of his maker, and see an infinite version of himself looking back. Saying "you are safe.. You are home... You are mine"
    To the only wise god our saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. Jude 1: 25.

    I am a cradle christian that unfortunately allowed my focus to change to being validated by the world. I had to face the poor choices I made, the steps I took away from my faith, the steps I took away from my god--and turn around to him. I found peace in prayer, comfort in those that loved the lord, and learned how to not be bitter, but instead work at getting better every day. I know I'm not perfect, I know I have made a lot of mistakes--but I also know that I am loved by a god who gave me jesus, and to focus on that whenever the world tries to tell me something else. Now, I focus more on learning my identity in christ and who god has created me to be, not in the world showing me where I continually fall short. Thank you lord.
