Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
She went to the stairwell to scream
But she didn't think anyone would care
Nightmares swallowed her dreams
And no one was there
Family didn't protect her
Innocence sure didn't last
There's nothing to look forward to
When you're haunted by your past

(Chorus)
I told her He sees,
I told her He knows,
I told her He's waiting to hold you,
To keep you safe and close
I said, "I don't know much
But I know this is true
My God is alive, and He's here,
And there is hope for you,
There is hope for you"

(Verse 2)
I ran down the stairs,
Not sure what I'd find
I met the girl who needed
To leave her shadows behind
We sat on the steps,
She showed me her scars,
And I saw a glimpse of light
Breaking through the dark when

(Chorus)


(Bridge)
Jesus will walk with us through the fire
Carry us through the storms we face
When we're given too much to handle
Our future is found
In His embrace…

So remember He sees,
Remember He knows,
Remember He's waiting to hold you,
To keep you safe and close
Now I don't know much
But I know this is true
My God is alive, and He's here,
And there is hope for you,
There is hope for you
