Rich Mullins – My Deliverer lyrics

Joseph took his wife and her child and they went to Africa
To escape the rage of a deadly king
There along the banks of the Nile,
Jesus listened to the song
That the captive children used to sing
They were singin'
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
Through a dry and thirsty land, water from the Kenyon heights
Pours itself out of Lake Sangra's broken heart
There in the Sahara winds Jesus heard the whole world cry
For the healing that would flow from His own scars
The world was singing
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise - He has written it upon the sky
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
I will never doubt His promise though I doubt my heart, I doubt my eyes My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise
Though the stars should break faith with the sky
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming.

    This song also points out that Jesus came as one of us, and suffered the same emotions of fear and bodily suffering as we do. Therefore, he understands us and when he returns, will redeem and expiate all the world's innocent suffering. I feel like it can speak hope into the refugee situation in Syria now, since Jesus himself was a refugee (in the story told in this song) and he will be with each of those families fleeing now. What I also like about this song is that Mullins makes it clear that Jesus' promises don't depend upon our faith, they will happen, and it's up to us whether or not we believe. So just believe! A simple and powerful message.

    This song is about believing that God will come through for us and save us from the pain we are suffering now. All we have to do is ask him and trust that he will not let us down. No matter what we are going through, he will deliver us.
