Good Christian Music | – Citizens & Saints – Oh God (Alternate Version)

Genre: Acoustic, Indie Rock, Worship

Citizens are another brilliant worship band from Mars Hill in Seattle. This song, Oh God, was written one night when lead singer Zach Bolen was led by the Holy Spirit to open up to the end of Romans Chapter 8 – “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

That’s where the inspiration for this song came from and it’s easy to notice the influence in the lyrics. This song is so raw with emotion and the recording really captures the intimacy between God and the lyricist.

In the valley, Oh God, you’re near
In the quiet, Oh God, you’re near
In the shadow, Oh God, you’re near
At my breaking, Oh God, you’re near

Oh God, you never leave my side
Your love will stand firm for all my life

In my searching, Oh God, you’re near
In my wandering, Oh God, you’re near
When I feel alone, Oh God, you’re near
At my lowest, Oh God, you’re near

Height nor depth nor anything else
Could pull us apart
We are joined as one by your blood
Hope will rise as we become more
Than conquerors through
The one who loved the world

  1. This song is so true to my life.  The first time I heard it, I was brought to tears.  I love a strong melody and nice chord sequence, but this song has it all, a perfect blend of melody,chords, and strong lyrics.  

  2. Working on last project of finals in my undergrad and this came on in my playlist. Had to stop and just worship God. Quality, doctrinal sound music that captures the passion and power of our Lord.

  3. You know when you hear a song and it is timely? I felt like I was having an "Oh God help thy weak and fear filled child" and the title resonated with me… Isn't God awesome? He knew (oh the irony) that what I needed to hear most…was that He was aware of my situation while I was ignorant…and that of course… Him being an active and pro-active Father… He was not passive to my ignorance…and so while my ignorance has brought me the constraints I am currently facing… I know that God has already prepared the way forward… why? Because He knew… and He is faithful when I am faithless for He cannot deny Himself…what a good father…what grace. I just wanted to share my gratitude to Him for His work in me, for me and through me.

    Cheers 🙂

  4. Ima be real honest I've dealt with an addiction to pornography and masturbation for a long time now and im tired of it, sometimes i feel isolates by this problem and i feel as if I've been abandoned by God but im not, and im just asking to stop, and for prayers because i want to quit now. Please pray for me.

  5. Esse recado foi deixado por você na data de hoje 20/10/2018. Você não teve o melhor dos anos, mas lembre-se daqui a 4 anos que você tá fazendo as coisas do jeito certo. E você escutou essa musica e léu a Biblia na passagem de Proverbios 14: 27.
