A Song for Sunday – “God is Watching Over You”

There are some songs that just have amazing words.

Today’s song is one of these!


This song makes me think of verses like:

‘Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

(Isaiah 41:10)

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

(Isaiah 43:1-3)

The song was recorded by Phil Joel (who was once with The Newsboys) in 2000.

Although you may not like this style of music or the long hair of the singer, I invite you to read these wonderful lyrics and listen to the reassuring message of the song.

God is Watching Over You

(Phil Joel)

He sees you down by the water line
Know what you’re thinking all the time
He sees the rising of the waves
When the tide starts rolling in
He lets you know it’s gonna be o.k. 

He sees you dancing in the moonlight
His arms around you hold ya tight
And if those clouds should start to break
He’ll be standing out in the rain with you
And though it’s hard to believe
He believes in you 

God is watching over you
As always
You are loved
Whatever you go through
He’s right beside you
God is watching over you
As always
And if you think He’ll ever leave you
You better think again 

Painted in the sky a rainbow to remind you
Nothing that is broken
Cannot be made new
He knows when ya feel so far away
He’s gonna keep the night light on
He’s waiting there to receive you 

You are loved
Wherever you go 

Through fire, through wind and through rain
Yesterday, today and tomorrow the same
Nothing here can take this love
Nothing you could do will break this love
Climb a tree, gonna reach so high
Swing low sweet chariot
It’s time to fly
He sees you down by the water line
